Attorney Gil I. Cornblum, who killed himself Monday in Canada, had leaked insider information while an associate at Sullivan & Cromwell and later as a partner at Dorsey & Whitney, according to a complaint filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission late Tuesday. Cornblum sent former law school classmate Stanko J. Grmovsek non-public information on some 40 mergers and acquisitions that he learned about while on the job at both law firms. All told, the two men made $10 million on the scheme, according to the SEC.
