Taking a break


Settled into my hotel room around the corner from the Law Courts. They are right across the road from where they used to play the Valencia Open which I went to on a few occasions. Brought back some memories.

Won't get a decision tomorrow. This isn't Judge Judy. We will make our case and then we have to wait 2-4 weeks probably for a decision. Ho hum.

Yes, hope it goes well Bob. I just read your background story about this. Well done for persevering, it takes a lot out of you I'm sure but you seem to have turned it round somehow and sound very 'grounded' about it all.

Thanks all. Not trying to get my hopes up too much but the lawyer was very upbeat about our chances after the hearing. One of the interesting points was that before the meeting, there was discussion about settling out of court whereby I would get the capital back but forego the interest. The banks lawyer seemed very keen to accept - almost too keen - but didn't have the authority to make the decision. He tried to call his bosses but was unable to get hold of them.

It was his enthusiasm to settle that made me believe I had a strong case and so after a discussion with my own lawyer, we decided to continue with the hearing. After all, 16 years of interest will easily be a 5 figure sum in itself.

But now we wait. As I mentioned before, we are expecting a decision in 2-4 weeks. Having waited 16 years, I can live with that. And there is still a chance the bank may try and make me an out of court offer, while we are waiting.

Edit

PS. I'm going to sleep well tonight.

Court came back with the decision today and found in favour of the bank. They don't have to pay me anything and I am liable for ALL costs.

Sometimes I hate this world.  Someone steals my money and then I have to pay for the privilege of not getting it back.

 oh, heck Bob, I really dont know what to say - so sorry that has happened. Are you able to appeal or would that expose you to more cost and risk?
