Judge stops bank's penalty charges pending decision


A woman has won a stay of execution in a court battle with bank giant Barclays.


Judge Abrahams stopped Barclays taking any more penalty charges and interest from Nadine Fry of Wren Close who had sued for their return.


At Luton Crown Court he ordered Barclays to stop applying the charges until a High Court test case settles the legal issues involved.


The judge suspended Ms Fry's claim until the outcome of the test case.


Ms Fry's father, John Fry who helped pursue the case, explained that if his daughter continued to have to make interest payments on her debts she would be in deep trouble whereas if they won the case she would be able to clear the debt completely.


Barclays spokesman Emma Austin said: "In order to create some certainty in relation to the large number of bank charges claims that have been brought, the banks and the Office of Fair Trading are going to the High Court to initiate a test case.


"Although in this particular case the order was made not to make further charges the judge also warned the claimant that should she exceed the authorised overdraft or have a cheque bounce during the stay, Barclays will be entitled to reclaim the charges at the end of the stay, should the test case be successful."


Who's the daddy in finding this case... Stay of execution here i come...
