Goldman "mommy track" lawsuit ends

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs Group Inc no longer faces a bias lawsuit by a former vice president who said the Wall Street bank put her on a "mommy track" and fired her while she was on maternity leave.

Judge Robert Patterson dismissed the case brought by Charlotte Hanna in a two-sentence order filed late on Thursday with the U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

It was not immediately clear why the case was dismissed, including whether the dismissal resulted from a settlement. A lawyer for Hanna had no immediate comment. Goldman and its lawyer did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The plaintiff, a Manhattan resident, sued Goldman in March. She alleged that, after her first maternity leave, the bank demoted her, excluded her from operations and made her feel unwelcome in what had become a "boys-only" club.

Hanna said she was fired in February 2009 after 11 years of employment and one week before her planned return from a second leave. She said the bank saw working mothers as "second-class citizens" who should stay home to care for their children.

Goldman denied the bias allegations.

The case is Hanna v. Goldman Sachs & Co et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 10-02637.
