Lewisham London Borough Council v Malcolm

House of Lords

“A disabled person who was being evicted from his council flat because he had sublet the flat in breach of the terms of his tenancy and had moved elsewhere, was not being evicted for a reason which related to his disability nor was he being treated less favourably than others who were not disabled. He was therefore not suffering discrimination.”
