The Tribunal case brought by Stella English against me and my company has been dismissed. A victory for the law against the claim culture.
A judiciary paper said Stella English's had been dismissed:
The judges also ruled that the claim "should never have been brought."
Former winner of The Apprentice Stella English has lost her claim of constructive dismissal against businessman Lord Sugar, the Judicial Office said.
Lord Sugar said he feels "wronged" by a former winner of the Apprentice who is currently suing him for constructive dismissal, an employment tribunal heard today.
Stella English, 34, from Whitstable, Kent, claims she was treated as an "overpaid lackey" after winning series six of the BBC1 programme.
Giving legal submissions today, Lord Sugar's representative Seamus Sweeney said: "The claimant has, in the eyes of Lord Sugar, deliberately courted the media with a view of damaging his reputation."
He told how Ms English had "sold her story" to the press several times and accused her of being a "headline-grabber", deliberately sensationalising aspects of her evidence.
He told the tribunal the same was true of Ms English, adding: "Using the media, in this case, was a weapon of choice... It was a first weapon of choice."
Stella English arrived at East London Tribunal Courts this morning. The employment tribunal involving Lord Sugar and the winner of 2010's The Apprentice, is expected to conclude today.

Lord Sugar said nothing as he left an employment tribunal in which the 2010 winner of his TV series The Apprentice is trying to sue him for constructive dismissal.
In an exchange with Philippa Jackson, representing Stella English at employment tribunal, Lord Sugar accused his former employee of lying about her version of events to generate publicity.
When Ms Jackson suggested he appeared angry, he said: "I'm angry because of this, because it's a total lie".
"When I came into the process of this tribunal, I was going to try to be generous to your client, but I've sat here and listened to her over the past two days and there is no other way to describe what she has said than as blunt lies."
At times Lord Sugar was irate as he spoke at the constructive dismissal hearing, at one point saying he wished he has employed another contestant "instead of her" pointing at Stella English.
In response to Ms English's accusation that referring to her, he said: "Nice girl, don't do much", Lord Sugar said:
"Absolute garbage, total garbage...why would I make a statement like that which is tantamount to an insult."
He also dismissed other claims by the 34-year-old as "total nonsense, lies, blunt lies".
