In brief: Perry Lee

Perry Lee, a final year law student, is taking a Liverpool law firm to industrial tribunal on the grounds he was racially discriminated against when passed over for a job. Lee, who was born in Liverpool, but whose parents are Chinese, is backed by the Commission for Racial Equality, which says law firm Morecroft Urquhart has no ethnic minority lawyers among its staff. It is thought Morecroft will counter that Lee, aged 45, was too old to be trained.
