Please , please read the sublime judgment of Sir Rupert in ROBERTS V BANK OF SCOTLAND (2013) EWCA Civ.882.
It marks the return of the PROTECTION FROM HARASSMENT ACT 1997, which was blown off course by a duff decision of The Appeal Court in 20007.
Here , the claimant was bombarded by 547 phone calls from the defendant which had inherited the Halifax. Mrs Roberts was slightly overdrawn. An award of £7,500 was unanimously upheld.
Remember , you have a six year limitation period . I feel so vindicated ; the charm and courtesy and decency of Lord Justice Jackson shines through. Uplifting stuff.
I am writing a full piece for the NLJ.
