Nocera reverses position on plagiarism charge

In a post titled Clearing a Name at Lehman, Joe Nocera reversed himself on a charge of plagiarism against a person then at Lehman:

When he first became aware of the post, seven months after the fact, he called me to complain. He made a convincing case that he had never plagiarized other analysts, and that he had not, in fact, been fired.

The punchline:

Realizing that my post was likely to continue to give Mr. Johnson’s critics an unfair weapon with which to cast aspersions on his work, I decided that the only appropriate course was to remove the allegation that he had been the plagiarist.

The remaining mystery: WHO was the plagiarist?
