Simpson ThacherOn April 30th we reported that Mark Levy, a partner at Kilpatrick Stockton, committed suicide at the firm’s DC office. Levy had been asked to leave the firm a day earlier as part of layoffs.

Today we learn that two weeks ago, an unnamed female associate at Simpson Thacher died, apparently at her own hand. She had been recently laid off from the firm.

JDJournal extends its condolences to both families. The only possible good that can come out of these tragedies is if they inspire anyone depressed or stressed by the wave of layoffs or the collapse of the economy to seek help rather than harming themselves.
