We realize that not everyone has been following Charney v. Sullivan & Cromwell, the salacious case filed by former S&C associate Aaron Charney (at right), alleging anti-gay discrimination and retaliation by his extremely prestigious (and profitable) former firm. But for those of you who are interested in this matter, today we have a special treat.
Remember Gera Grinberg — the former colleague of Aaron Charney who some partners suspected was in an “unnatural relationship” with Charney? Grinberg, who no longer works at S&C, is a critical figure in this case. But he has been an elusive figure to followers of this litigation. We’ve seen no pictures, and we know few facts about him.
Finally, after months of mystery, we’ve gotten our hands on a photograph of him. It’s kinda old, but hey, it’s better than nothing.
Check it out, after the jump.
So here it is — a picture of Gera Grinberg in the eleventh grade, straight from his high school yearbook (1990):
So whaddya think? Would Gera and Aaron make a cute couple, or what?
Does he look a trifle dorky? Perhaps. But in Gera Grinberg’s defense:
1. He’s Canadian.
2. This photo is over 17 years old. You can’t make judgments about how Gera Grinberg looks today based on this pic.
3. Let he who wasn’t dorky in high school cast the first stone. And since we’re mostly lawyers here, we doubt many stones will be flying.
We thank the source who sent us this photo (and apologize for that crack about Canadians). This pic may be old, but information about Gera Grinberg is hard to come by. We’re tremendously grateful!
