Case against Capital Home Loans dismissed

A judge has dismissed a court case brought against Capital Home Loans.

The case, brought by Chris Herbert against Capital Home Loans and another named party, was heard at Bristol County Court on Monday (August 19).

The judge has dismissed the case and found that there was no case to answer against Capital Home Loans.

Bob Young, sales and marketing director of Capital Home Loans, says: “His case was naive and completely baseless. The whole thing has caused everyone involved unnecessary work – for all parties involved. The judge did not agree with Mr Herbert&#39s points and made that very clear during the hearing.”
