Shinhan Bank is Sued By Staffer Complaining of Launder Weakness So Aug 8 Then 4 Day Trial

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 1 – South Korean Shinhan Bank's New York subsidiary has been sued an employee who says he was fired after refusing to cover up money laundering deficiencies at the bank.   

Gu Seon Song filed his lawsuit on December 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, where Inner City Press found it in the docket that same day.

  The plaintiff describes Shinhan as lagging behind in remedial projects it promised to the FDIC, and Tae Won Suh being dispatch from South Korea to clean up the mess. But Suh ordered Song to cover it up and he refused and was fired.

   Gu has sued for a Depository Institution Employee Protection Remedy.

On March 1, the assigned District Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a conference and issued this schedule: "This case is to be tried to a jury. Counsel for the parties have conferred and their present best estimate of the length of trial is 3-4 days. The next Case Management Conference is scheduled for Aug. 5, 2022 at 10 AM. Deposition due by 5/30/2022. Fact Discovery due by 7/1/2022. Expert Discovery due by 8/15/2022. Case Management Conference set for 8/5/2022 at 10:00 AM before Judge Paul A. Engelmayer."

The case is Song v. Shinhan Bank America, 21-cv-11207 (Engelmayer)
