In brief: Law Society faces RSI damages claim

The Law Society is being sued for damages over an RSI claim by a former staff journalist on the Law Society Gazette. The society denies liability. Judith Pett, a sub-editor on the magazine, claims she suffered injury arising from her work and left the society last week after agreeing to terminate employment because of her alleged condition. County Court proceedings are in progress after a summons was issued in the Romford County Court. Robin Thompson & Partners acts for Pett, whose case is supported by the MSF union. Blatchfords is understood to act for the society.
