East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust v Sanders  UKEAT
ET committed procedural error by carrying out its own internet search
In East of England Ambulance Service v Sanders an Employment Tribunal heard evidence and submissions on a preliminary issue of disability, and retired to consider its decision. It then researched the Internet, without prior reference to the parties, to ask a question about whether there had been no obvious prior issue between the parties. It then told the parties what it had found out.
