Pre-selection not discriminatory

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Coker v Lord Chancellor (22 November 2001), the Court of Appeal holds that it was not indirectly discriminatory on grounds of sex or race for the Lord Chancellor to appoint a white man as his special adviser. Since the Lord Chancellor intended from the outset to appoint his friend, there was no disproportionate impact because everyone else was excluded from consideration, regardless of sex or race.
