The legal battle between Sullivan & Cromwell and former associate Aaron B. Charney, who sued the firm alleging partners discriminated against him because he is gay, took a dramatic turn Thursday when it emerged in court that Charney had recently destroyed a personal hard drive to which he had e-mailed firm documents. It is unclear what information was on the hard drive, but Sullivan & Cromwell has alleged in its suit that Charney misappropriated some internal documents that he allegedly leaked to the media.
