Dr Adoko v Law Society: CA 7 Mar 1997

The appellant had complained to the Employment Tribunal alleging race discrimination by the Respondent. That claim had failed, and several appeals had also failed. The claim alleged indirect discrimination, and the respondent admitted unwitting indirect discrimination, and accordingly no damages were payable. Because of his manner of conduct of the proceedings, including disclosure of matters he had undertaken to keep confidential, and the introduction of late amendments, costs were ordered against him. The complainant also attacked the manner of conduct of the proceedings. There were no grounds to review the decisions.
