A judge has tossed two of the claims in an ex-Sullivan & Cromwell associate's sexual orientation bias suit against the firm. Aaron Charney sued the firm in January, alleging partners discriminated against him because he is gay. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Bernard Fried ruled Friday that Charney's claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress was duplicative of his claims for discrimination and retaliation under local Human Rights Law. The judge also dismissed a conspiracy claim against the firm.
