Regina v South Bank University, Ex Parte Coggeran: CA 19 Sep 2000

The applicant had been unable to complete her vocational course, after pregnancy related illness and absence. She was not allowed an extension of time to complete the course, and claimed she had been discriminated against. A judge granting a judicial review of the decision of the University was wrong to pronounce on the availability of county court proceedings. Nevertheless, the claim of sex discrimination against a University could not be brought in the employment tribunal, but must be in the County Court, which would have the powers of the High Court to make orders.
