General Electric Co. is being sued by one of its own lawyers. Lorene Schaefer, general counsel for GE’s transportation unit, filed a class action against the company May 31 in U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. Schaefer alleges that GE pays its female executives and lawyers less than their male counterparts and fails to promote females at the same rate. The suit is seeking up to $500 million in damages. Her lawyer is David Sanford of the D.C. office of Sanford, Wittels & Heisler, a firm specializing in employment cases. Sanford, a former philosophy professor, has litigated gender and race class actions against Toshiba, Kroger, and Cracker Barrel.
