Banker's sexism claim adjourned
Ms Villalba was made redundant last August
The 7.5m ($13.8m) sex discrimination claim made by former banker Stephanie Villalba against Merrill Lynch has been adjourned until 31 August.

Ms Villalba's barrister has been taken unexpectedly ill.

The ex-banker has told a tribunal in London she suffered "intolerable discrimination".

Merrill Lynch denies the allegations. "We are extremely disappointed that we will have to wait several more months... to tell our story," the firm said.
