Former Sullivan & Cromwell associate Aaron Charney has moved to dismiss the firm's suit against him for disclosing client and firm confidences, arguing that most of the alleged confidences had already been made public by the firm. The firm had sued Charney in response to his own suit, which alleged he had been subject to discrimination by partners on the basis of sexual orientation. In its suit, the firm claimed Charney improperly disclosed confidential information in his complaint and in media interviews.
