Sullivan & Cromwell has filed a suit accusing former associate Aaron B. Charney of stealing internal firm documents on associate morale and revealing client confidences in news interviews and in his pro se complaint against the law firm. A complaint filed by the firm says that Charney, who has accused several of the firm's top partners of discriminating against him because he is gay, is using his suit "as the centerpiece of a malicious public relations campaign."
