Carpenter v City of Edinburgh Council - Delay, the right to a fair trial, and blots on the landscape  EAT
Mr Carpenter brought claims of disability discrimination and unfair dismissal. They were heard by an employment tribunal between November 2001 and March 2004. The decision was eventually promulgated on 5 April 2007. Mr Carpenter lost. He appealed. He argued that important social issues in his case had simply been lost sight of due to the delay.
