Barclays Capital Is Sued For Ordering Distasteful Actions Now Initials Requested

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 31– Brian La Belle sued Barclays Capital for, he says, telling him to take "distasteful" actions and follow unwritten rules.   

    On May 7,  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein held a discovery proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 A pending request for the emails of Peggy Campbell to be searched.

But Judge Gorenstein called Ms. Campbell a "passive actor" and said that whatever relevant is in her e-mail should also show up in others' e-mail.

 There was discussion of how performance evaluations are done in firms like Barclays.

On October 7 another conference was held, and Inner City Press again covered it. During the conference, Judge Gorenstein questioned Barclays' citing to DeLorenzo v. Spartan Sec. Services as a basis to reduce plaintiff's bonus amount. But Judge Gorenstein then adhered to his decision that the reason for reducing the bonus "is of insufficient relevant to require production."

On March 31, 2022 Judge Gorenstein held a discovery conference in the case. A request was made, if not for names, at least for initials.

The case is La Belle v. Barclays Capital Inc., 19-cv-3800 (Oetken / Gorenstein)
