The offices of PIMCO are shown in Newport Beach, CaliforniaFamed bond investor Bill Gross sued his former employer Pacific Investment Management Co and its parent Allianz SE for $200 million, saying he was driven out of the bond fund giant he helped found by a greedy "cabal" of executives who wanted his huge bonus for themselves. 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 their ultimately successful plot to oust him. The lawsuit ratchets up the vitriol between Gross, 71, who now runs the Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund for Janus Capital Group Inc , and Pimco, which he had built over four decades into a $2 trillion U.S. bond fund company.
