S&C Associate’s Destroyed Hard Drive May Destroy His Case

The New York Law Journal reports that former Sullivan & Cromwell asociate Aaron Charnley has apparently destroyed a personal computer hard drive that may have contained information relevant to the litigation between Charnely and the firm. Charnely has been given until February 14th to explain his actions to the Court. One word comes to mind – spoliation. If it is found that Charnely intentionally destroyed evidence, it is very possible, if not liklely, that it would mean the end not only of his case, but of his legal career.
