Freshfields wins Bloxham age case...
In response to Lawyer News Daily
It is not a question of Freshfields being "guilty, but.....". As you point out in your main report [see above], discrimination is permissible if it is found to be a proportionate means to a legitimate end. In short, such discrimination is not unlawful. We all discriminate to a greater or lesser extent. Maybe we choose our friends based upon their social or educational background. Women will often not go out with a guy who is shorter than them. Some men don't like fat women. Some people don't like the Birmingham accent (can't understand why). Such behaviour is discrimination, but it is not unlawful. So, Freshfields have not been "guilty" at all.
