Date Set For Legal Battle Between, Chelsea, Mourinho And Dr Carneiro

The legal row between Dr Eva Carneiro, Jose Mourinho and Chelsea heads for the courts for the first time in the new year with lawyers for all sides due to cross swords in a private hearing on January 6.

Carneiro’s lawyers will be claiming for reinstatement in her role as First Team Doctor, damages for s*x discrimination from manager Jose Mourinho as well as personal injury compensation and aggravated damages from the club.
After months of accusations and legal correspondence, the two legal teams – Eastwoods and Mary O’Rourke QC on behalf of Carneiro and Fox Williams for Chelsea and Mourinho – will be fully briefed for battle since proceedings were issued back in November.
At this stage it’s thought unlikely that either Mourinho or Carneiro will attend the preliminary hearing. But these latest developments will do little to ease the pressure on the beleaguered 52-year-old manager.
The hearing will take place at the London South Employment Tribunal in Croydon, rather than the Central London Tribunal, as Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham falls under the Croydon tribunal’s jurisdiction.
