Sexual orientation discrimination not sex discrimination

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Secretary of State for Defence v MacDonald (1 June 2001), the Inner House of the Court of Session rules that discrimination on grounds of sex does not include discrimination on the ground of sexual orientation, and that a male member of the RAF who was dismissed because he was homosexual was not discriminated against on grounds of sex.
