A win for our client in the Supreme Court

Our client was successful in the Supreme Court last week where we assisted him in preventing Allied Irish Bank from repossessing his family home.

On the 13 November 2013 the Supreme Court Justices Hardiman, McKechnie and Laffoy made a decision in favour of our client Tom Darcy in his ongoing dispute with AIB.

AIB had obtained judgment in default of defence against Mr.Darcy and the Supreme Court set aside this judgment on the basis that Mr.Darcy was not served with a copy of the said judgment and proper procedures were not followed.

AIB relied on inconsistent and contradictory letters, supposedly 'calling-in' Mr.Darcy's loan. In one such letter, the recipient has no recollection of having received the correspondence and the sender could not swear under affidavit of having sent particular correpsondence to Mr.Darcy.

This victory will enable the family to stay in their family home for the immediate future. This is a great comfort for Mr.Darcy and his family in their on-going litigious battle with AIB.
