Lloyds TSB has won a second county court case against a customer trying to reclaim overdraft charges. :-(
A case was dismissed by a judge at Lancaster county court on 11 May, four days before a ruling in Birmingham against a claim from Kevin Berwick. A builder from Lancaster, Julian Rudd, had tried to recoup £3,000 in overdraft charges and interest.
Lloyds TSB did not turn up to argue its case, but the judge decided Mr Rudd had failed to state an adequate claim.
Judge Forrester, who heard the case, said: "It is ordered that the particulars of claim are struck out as disclosing no reasonable grounds for bringing the claim set out as a coherent set of facts, which if true, disclose a legally recognisable claim against the defendant." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6692559.stmhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6692559.stm
