SSgA claims that Dean Barr, Joshua Feuerman and Richard Goldman have non-competition contracts that prevent them from taking their new jobs.
Attorneys for all sides argued the case in Bostons Suffolk Superior Court this week, where SSgA sought an injunction to stop the hiring. The judge is expected to make a decision on the injunction next week.
Mr. Barr was SSgAs chief investment officer of global active quantitative strategies. Mr. Feuerman was an SSgA portfolio manager and head of international quantitative equity strategies. Mr. Goldman was SSgAs head of corporate defined benefit sales.
