Truist Bank Was Sued As White Boys' Club Now Settling the Case But Will Club Continue?

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 2 – Truist Bank has been defending itself from charges of discrimination and retaliation, and trying to limit discovery.   Now on June 2, Truist is settling.

 On March 10, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang held a discovery proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

Sharon Lee's complaint cites a White dominated "boys' club."

 She says Truist has failed to provide documents about comparators, a key for a discrimination case.  

It seemed the information would be limited to Atlanta and New York.

Now on June 2, the court has been informed by letter that in Lee v. Trust Bank, the discrimination case, "the parties have reached a settlement in principle that resolves all of Plaintiff's claims... The Parties are available for a conference should the Court require any further information." Like, will the club continue?

The case is Lee v. Truist Bank et al., 20-cv-1816 (Koeltl / Wang)
