The identity of a lawyer who is claiming damages from his former employer for psychiatric problems would not be protected, a judge ruled. District Court Judge David Lok Kai-hong dismissed the application made by Tam Kam-tong for an anonymity order in relation to his claim for employee compensation arising from an accident. He asked the court to conceal his identity fearing future discrimination, but the judge said it did not apply in this case.
