The actions you take immediately after a car accident can have a significant impact on your health, insurance claim and potential personal injury claim.

Gender bias, sexual harassment suit vs Goldman Sachs goes forward

In 2010, a group of high-ranking female employees sued Goldman Sachs for gender discrimination and sexual harassment. Their bid to certify the case as a class action hit a snag when the Supreme Court limited class actions in 2011. A judge has now certified the action to address disparate-treatment and disparate-impact discrimination claims.

The lead plaintiff had been a vice president of Goldman's securities division.
