After an investigation lasting more than three years, a lawyer has been charged with discrimination after shouting aloud in her office, "I cannot stand Jewish people" according to The Daily Mail.

The lawyer in question, Danielle Morris, 34, was also ordered to pay a fine in the amount of $3,290 by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) as well close to $7,000 in court costs, after the proceedings in London, England.

The court issued no further disciplinary sanctions, ruling the remarks were “foolish and ignorant rather than malicious”.

Morris was sued after a Jewish staff member overheard her offensive comments, which, according to reports, were said after she was upset that a Jewish man had moved in front of her at a doctor’s office while she waited in line to take one of her children.

“'Please do not say that,” Morris’ employee said after her boss blurted out the ignorant comments.

“I don’t care, I cannot stand them”, Morris is said to have responded to the suit, according to the Daily Mail.

Less than a week later, the employee brought a racial and religious discrimination claim against Morris and the practice, resulting with her being awarded an undisclosed sum in damages in May, 2011,after the tribunal ruled in her favour.

Her attorney, who claimed that Morris did not intend to cause offence, had "not been aware" of the long history of the persecution of the Jewish people.

"Because of her age she has had limited direct contact with those who had been familiar with the discovery of the horrors of the Holocaust or the attitudes which had led to these events,” he said.
