New York Mets Owner Steve Cohen Sued for Gender Discrimination

New York Mets owner Steve Cohen is the subject of a gender discrimination complaint against his hedge fund, Point72 Asset Management, according to the New York Times‘ Matthew Goldstein.

“In the complaint, Sara Vavra, who led a trading group at Point72, said Mr. Cohen stopped by her office in July 2019 and began ‘an abusive, expletive-ridden tirade’ in which he said her work ‘sucked’ and she was ‘stupid,'” Goldstein reported. “She said in the complaint that beyond dropping a few generic expletives Mr. Cohen also used a derogatory word for a woman’s genitals.”

Vavra also said in her complaint Cohen asked her to come into a colleague’s office, at which point he reiterated his criticism.

Per Goldstein, Vavra also said in her complaint Cohen “verbally berated her even though her trading group was a top performer at the hedge fund and she received a positive performance review from Mr. Cohen in December 2018.”
