Today we are delighted to be ending ANOTHER successful week with another FANTASTIC Anfi victory.
Our Irish clients will be delighted to see their case completed with an award of 109.654€ PLUS INTEREST PLUS COSTS – 49.000€ MORE THAN THEY ORIGINALLY PAID!
Our client’s journey to victory started in the court of the first instance SBT2 where the judge declared their contract with Anfi null and void and demanded a FULL REPAYMENT PLUS INTEREST.
As expected Anfi appealed this decision……but so did we as the sentence did not acknowledge the deposits taken illegally within the statutory cooling-off period.
We knew this oversight would be rectified by the High Court, which it was.
High Court number 3 completely dismissed the appeal from Anfi, agreed with the sentence passed by the court of the First Instance by confirming a full refund BUT FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGED that deposits had been taken illegally within the statutory cooling off period and INCREASED the amount to a FULL REPAYMENT PLUS DOUBLE THE AMOUNTS FOR DEPOSITS.
Once again, because of the legal precedent set in relation to deposits taken illegally within the statutory cooling off period which states any such amounts should be repaid back in DOUBLE, our clients were awarded 49.000€ MORE THAN THEY ORIGINALLY PAID – WHAT A FANTASTIC RESULT!!
But that was not the end of our client’s journey…….
Anfi decided to appeal the High Court decision to the Supreme Court of Madrid……
Of course, they lost……..what other outcome did they expect!!!
The Supreme Court of Madrid rejected their appeal which means they didn’t even take it into consideration! They simply confirmed the ruling of the High Court and demanded repayment of 109.654€ PLUS INTEREST PLUS COSTS AND APPEAL FEES – AGAIN – 49.000€ MORE THAN THEY ORIGINALLY PAID!
Following recent events, CLA will now proceed to collect these fees through the Mercantile Court.
In the meantime, congratulations again to our Irish clients and to our Claims Consultant Jake Kaiser and our lawyers Eva Gutierrez and Cristina Batista.
