Veale Wasbrough loses 'Basil Fawlty' discrimination claims for RCGP
Why has The Lawyer decided to report this particular case over any other? There are tons of employment tribunal claims heard every day, often (obviously) involving represented parties losing - is there to be a special weekly supplement shaming the employment lawyers who fail on behalf of their clients? I echo the previous two comments in being slightly outraged on behalf of the lawyer involved in this, who I also don't know, at the personal nature of the report. Also if the discrimination did not lead to the dismissal, which seems to be the case as the claimant lost the unfair dismissal claim, compensation will be limited to injury to feelings which could be a relatively small amount (very possibly below the amount the claimant would have settled for pre-hearing).
