Sullivan & Cromwell Hits Back

Sullivan & Cromwell, the white shoe New York law firm, has filed counterclaims against the former associate that sued it, claiming that the firm discriminated against him on the grounds of his sexual orientation. This is shaping up to be an extraordinarily nasty fight, even by employment law standards. I woudn’t think that a firm like S&C would necessarily want this sort of matter splashed throughout the media, but by filing aggressive counterclaims the firm has defied my expectations. Keep an eye on this case. (You can see a copy of S&C’s complaint here, and a copy of the complaint filed by the former associate here.)
