Ministry of Defence v Cowan EAT/1299/97

Reports relating to this case:

  • Legal advice did not bar extension

    Date:
    1 June 1998

    The fact that an applicant may have a negligence claim against a solicitor in respect of an out-of-time discrimination complaint does not necessarily mean that it is not "just and equitable" for the complaint to be heard, the EAT has held in Ministry of Defence v Cowan.
