Lawyer Sued Law Firm, Law Firm Sues Lawyer
Sullivan & Cromwell, [the law firm accused last month of sexual discrimination against their associate Aaron Brett Charney], is now filing their own complaint. Back in January, [Charney filed a $15 million lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court, claiming he was ridiculed and tormented when his bosses at the firm learned he was gay](http://www.nypress.com/blogx/display_blog.cfm?bid=82038963&day=17&startmonth=1&startyear=2007). The firm denies these allegations. Last week, Sullivan & Cromwell said that Charney broke his attorney-client privilege by publicizing his complaint in the press and on an Internet discussion board called [Greedy Associates](http://www.greedyassociates.com/). The firm also implied that Charney stole proprietary documents from a neighboring office and leaked them to the Wall Street Journal. [The suit was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court by another New York firm, Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, requesting a judge force Charney to return the documents and award the firm damages](http://www.nysun.com/article/47994). Hell hath no wrath like a law firm scorned.
