An (sordid) affair for White & Case to remember

An (sordid) affair for White & Case to remember

A White & Case associate has found himself in hot water over his affair with another man's wife.

White & Case may have been hit hard by the recession like other firms globally, but gossip site Above the Law reports one of the firm's associates has been hitting it up with another man's wife. 


According to reports, the "supposedly cuckolded husband" has no intention of allowing this White & Case attorney get away with an affair. 


He has sent two accusatory emails to dozens of recipients who know him and the attorney. The feisty emails have now made their way around the White & Case offices in Miami, and even to our inboxes. 


Here is a glimpse of the ensuing emails. "When you decided to start sleeping with my wife while I was out of town over the last few weeks (May 27 - June 7 2009), you threatened my way of life... You are a securities lawyer at White & Case, so you know how to do due diligence. Perhaps you thought it was clever or fun, but attending a school recital with my wife who you've just met and started sleeping with [her] over the last few weeks is extremely poor judgement. 


"Sleeping with other mens wives, is alone, perhaps the poorest taste and the worst judgement all on its own. It implies a very low moral character. Perhaps you wish to plead ignorance... But after reviewing the text messages between you and my wife it would appear that you did the due diligence, that you knew she was spending the summer with me in Canada starting last week... 


"I have tried to contact you numerous times this week to address the situation and ask you to step aside... to let me address the issues now faced in our house," the email began. 


"You got the attention and sex from my wife that you wanted, but now it is time to step aside and let me sort out the problems you have played a major role in." Read more here and comment below.
