The Case

The Employment Appeal Tribunal considered themselves bound by decisions of the Court of Appeal, and were compelled to dismiss the appellant's substantive appeal on jurisdiction to hear complaints of racial discrimination. Further, there had been no real possibility that the appeal tribunal had been biased as the appellant had objected, under art6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights, and accordingly, that objection would also fail.
