A senior judge spent £75 of his legal chambers’ funds to pay for a splinter to be removed from his daughter’s finger, an employment tribunal heard.

Anthony Metzer QC, a deputy high court judge, also made sure members of his family and their friends were taken on as interns, it was claimed.

They were allegedly paid more than their colleagues and known as ‘Metzer’s interns’.

When Karen Gillard, a fellow barrister and chambers deputy treasurer, leaked details of the splinter treatment to website Legal Cheek she was fired, the central Londontribunal was told.
