Just phoned Maidstone County Court. They told me case was stayed on 8th August pending OFT outcome. I have not had notification of this, and will try to get stay lifted, bearing in mind I was told by Nat West they would offer me £1100 before I started all this nonsense.

I was at Newport (Gwent) County Court today to file an AQ.


There is now a blanket stay in place, and the staff didn't like being told that the Master of the Rolls had not given such authority to District Judges.


Noone in the office has a clue about credit cards or other claims that are outside the remit of the test case.


They took my £100 of course!

Birmingham County Court


The claim is stayed until further order with a view to awaiting the decision in the test case. Either party my apply at any time by application on notice in accordance with CPR23, to lift the stay. If there is no such application by 30th September 2008, the court will in any event then consider whether to make a further order.


So Birmingham are expecting it to last at least a year :evil:

CAG estimated unlawful charges to total 4.5 billion pounds per year. Over 6 years this would come to 27 billion pounds. When charges are ruled in High Court as unlawful where they exceeded a certain £ value, there appears no clarity, if all reclaims would then be met by banks on itemised demand, or even if banks should organise their IT to repay the unlawful portion of ALL charges to ALL customers without the need for reclaim.


If the total reclaimable were 27 billion pounds,


if nationwide reclaims have netted say 50 million pounds (16 million pounds reported won by CAG winners),


assuming the final refund would be half or two-thirds or three-quarters of the original charge (not the 100% refunds up to now), then banks and cards can look forward to paying out over 100 times more than they have repaid to date -- a staggering sum.


With so much as stake, possibly the survival of the smaller credit cards, it would not be surprising if they appeal the High Court verdict all the way to the House of Lords, even to the EU Court if they can.


Happy are they who have already been repaid.

Birkenhead County Court



I had my court date on 17th August at Birkenhead. I think there were about 20 or so other people there waiting to be seen and we were all being called in one by one.


From what I can gather, all cases were being stayed by the Judge, but I was lucky - the Abbey Rep for my case hadn't turned up (although there was an Abbey Rep there, I wasn't on her list!) and so the Judge found in my favour! :D Abbey have to pay me by the 7th Sept - I'm just hoping they don't try any tricks to get out of it.


I noticed that out of all the 'Bank Charges' people waiting to be seen, I could only see one other person carrying anything that looked like a 'court bundle', most people had nothing with them, and the Judge commented on how well put together mine was (thanks to this website and Martin Lewis' for all the info needed), so I'm wondering if people are getting themselves as well prepared as they should be?


Also, it seemed that a few people hadn't turned up - you really do need to go to your court case once you get a date, you just might get lucky like me and find your 'opposition' doesn't turn up for some reason!


Good luck to everyone else!

Manchester County Court (Crown Square) has said that it is staying ALL bank charges cases.


It may be best for one to call the Court and ask for Case Management Section and ask regarding whether bank charges cases are being stayed.


To the best of my knowledge A&L are not covered by the FSA waiver, but they are still staying claims against A&L.


Crown Square & Deansgate have the same Judges as far as I am aware, so I believe that claims in Deansgate will also be stayed.


They are also apparently staying claims for credit card charges and MEAF's.

Tunbridge Wells County Court


Stayed my claim against HSBC on 10th August 'pending the final decision in the test case between OFT v Abbey National and others, or further order of the court'.


I am debating whether or not to apply for the stay to be lifted. I am unable to prove any hardship, although the claim is for 1,900 and rising.
