(Newser) – A pension fund investor is taking Goldman Sachs to court over bonuses it says has nothing to do with employee merit. The suit filed by the Security Police and Fire Professionals of America Retirement Fund accuses the company of preparing to "blindly" hand out $22 billion in bonuses, Reuters reports. A Goldman spokesman says the suit, filed in New York's Supreme Court, is "completely without merit."
