£10m claim over reference to past indiscretions

An IT project manager is claiming compensation of £10m from a former
employer for providing a reference which cost him his job.

Michael Johnson was dismissed by Deutsche Bank following a reference
provided by Perot Systems, which allegedly quoted a former colleague who
described working with Johnson as "the most horrendous episode that I have
ever experienced in my working life", accused him of technical
incompetence and claimed he had been "kicked out of a bank" for
obtaining a mortgage fraudulently.
