A computer error by a Cleary Gottlieb associate is the subject of motions in teh Lehman borthers deal.
Above the Law was the first to report the error. Its story said the mistake happened at around 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 18 when a second-year associate asked a first-year associate to reformat an Excel document of critical Lehman contracts to be assumed by Barclays.
This is why having associates work insane hours is very often a bad thing.
