There were also two further appeals against Anfi, and one against Tasolan which went in our favour also. The Court of Appeal has confirmed that both judgements still stand.

Jurisdiction:

Six cases valued at £84,295

This week, all six cases ruled in our favour were against Diamond Resorts who argued the cases should not be heard under Spanish jurisdiction, however, the judge ruled they can.

In one of the cases, Diamond Resorts had requested that the jurisdiction should be discussed under EU regulations and ruled by the EU court due to the clients residing in the UK. However, the judge based his decision in ruling upon the fact that the UK is no longer part of the EU so the case must be heard under Spanish jurisdiction.

All six cases will now proceed to the next step.
