NEW YORK -- A Deutsche Bank AG vice president said she was fired this month in retaliation for her gender bias lawsuit and subsequent complaints accusing the German bank of trying to retard her career.

Kelley Voelker, who turns 46 on Monday, said she learned of her firing two weeks ago, after having been told on Aug. 21 that no one in her hedge fund group would lose their jobs in connection with the bank's global cost-cutting plan.
