Good afternoon,


Can anybody give any information on Judge David Burton from Leeds Employment Tribunal.


This man is not in the judiciary list and there is very little information about him on the internet, I have asked Leeds Tribunal and the Judiciary but cannot get any information out of them.


He presided over my case and I believe he may have links to the other party, he may be a solicitor.


Any information would be gratefully accepted, thanks.

He gets a mention here from a couple of years ago: http://www.employeemanagement.co.uk/blog/2011/09/employment-tribunal-unfair-dismissal-sex-discrimination/


But he isn't in the register of barristers at the bar standards board: https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/regulatory-requirements/the-barristers%27-register/


And he doesn't seem to be in the law society's database of solicitors either: http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/find-a-solicitor/?view=solsearch


Perhaps he's a JP?

If he knew the solicitor, he would have to declare this, but it shouldn't make any difference to the outcome of proceedings.


What is it you want to know about him?


Edit - this might be worth a read for you - http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/about-the-judiciary/judges-magistrates-and-tribunal-judges/judges-career-paths/becoming-a-tribunal-judge


Note that if he is a full time judge, he may have removed himself from the roll of solicitors as he wouldn't be a practicing solicitor. Im not sure if barristers need to de register, though.

tribunal judges do not have to have been a solicitor or barrister.
