Full success! We proved the public interest test and the Information Commission decided in our favour.
The General Teaching Council ruled in October 2008 that a former education, training and employment manager at Brighton & Hove City Council was guilty of discriminating against and victimising a teacher who is transgender and was ordered to pay £35000 in compensation.
The manager, Philip Morgan, had secretly sent a fax to an employment agency that revealed the teacher was transgender, which led to her being blacklisted.
Brighton & Hove Council spent over £100000 to fight the tribunal case. The public wants to know how much the council spent of public money.

We are asking the The Information Commissioner to disclose the amount of public money spent to fight the tribunal case against the teacher Natasha Thoday.
