  • Can anyone confirm when the judgment is due? I understand that it usually takes the Supreme Court between 2 and 6 months to hand down judgment, but we heard on the radio this morning that the judgment was due today (which seems unlikely given that the hearing is likely to be three days long). Any guidance in this regard would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  • What can be the point of such a claim?

    If he had still been producing the goods the other partners wouldn't have wanted him to retire anyway, so the claim would never have arisen.

    If he wasn't then he could have been booted out of the partnership on performance gounds irrespective of his age.

    And I, as a taxpayer, strongly object to the EHRC hiring QC's at my expense to support such pointless claims.

  • this case interest anyone over 40 who discovers that once you hit the big 40 you are no longer eligible for a commonwealth scholarship. Ageism is alive and well everywhere and the only perons who dont care are the super rich and the super young

  • So this old foodwaster signed a contract, viz. a partnership deed, that included a provision that he'd retire at 65. But now he doesn't want to honour that agreement so goes off loopholing - wasting vast amounts of public money and court time in the process.
