Bill Gross, the prominent bond investor, has sued his former employer Pacific Investment Management Co and its parent Allianz SE for $200 million, claiming that he was wrongfully ousted by a "cabal" of executives who wanted his share of the bonus pool.
In a complaint filed on Thursday in the California Superior Court in Orange County, Gross said Pimco managing directors were "driven by a lust for power, greed, and a desire to improve their own financial position and reputation" in an ultimately successful plot to drive him out in September 2014.
