A BARRISTER accused of racial discrimination by a former colleague said he hoped her "frivolous" claims would not discourage other members of the Bar from pursuing similar complaints. Nicholas Nicol was among the barristers at Staple Inn Chambers accused by Joy Okoye of racial discrimination. Earlier this month her claim was struck out by Judge Quentin Edwards QC of Central London County Court.

Okoye is planning an appeal.
