The article reports on the decision of Judge Andrew Kearney at Bristol County Court on the case filed against Lloyds TSB Bank PLC over overdraft fee claims in England. Kearney ordered the bank to pay the costs of a complainant for wasting the court's time and for acting unreasonably, insisting that Lloyds had not intended to defend the claim in court. A week before the court hearing in February 2007, the bank gave way and paid the complainant in full.
