If I remember correctly from months ago, someone senior in a group punched an intern in the stomach as a "joke". Punched him so hard that he passed out and suffered multiple injuries.

Blumenthal alleged that Erukhimov warned him not to tell management about the incident or else Erukhimov's uncle or his cousin would kill him. They were "contract killers" for Russian oligarchs, Blumenthal claimed Erukhimov told him. Blumenthal wrote that he believed the threat from Erukhimov was real and that Erukhimov had also previously told Blumenthal about his "extensive gun collection," including assault rifles, and about how his cousin had left a bouncer at a nightclub in "a vegetative state" after the bouncer asked the cousin not to stand on a table.  The night of the alleged incident, the lawsuit continued, Erukhimov also told Blumenthal that his uncle had once nearly decapitated someone who he had been paid to kill, with piano wire.

Good lord.  
 

Just imagine people asking "how was your internship at Goldman? :)"  "Oh I got brain damage by a deranged Russian mobster"

"Blumenthal went to the hospital, where he claimed he was diagnosed with a "hemorrhagic stroke." He alleged in his lawsuit that he continues to suffer from some of the side effects of the incident-PTSD, mental anguish, a brain injury, and physical pain-some of which may be "permanent."

Yikes...poor kid.

Much of that reads as staging for a civil lawsuit.  The phrasing of the language and the dramatic flair in the presentation reeks of a crafted legal complaint.  This isn't to discount the terrible things alleged but I think reality is likely much more tame than this telling is.  This is how you win these types of lawsuits, the plaintif never wants them to end up in a courtroom, hell I would argue they want that less than the defendant does.  Mostly because there will be an inordinate number of "character" wittnesses that will tear this person a new one.  All it takes to turn a jury off is to paint the image that the plaintif as a whinny complainer who shirked at work and offloaded responsibility to others.  That will 100% happen.  There are enough hungry young guys at GS that will happily lie on the stand to undercut the lawsuit in hopes of a nice bump to their bonus.
