The High Court has decided to stay two cases, Barnes v Black Horse Ltd and McIlquham v Black Horse Ltd  EWHC 1950 (QB), in which the claimants allege they were missold PPI products by Black Horse Limited (part of the Lloyds TSB Group). The cases have been stayed pending a decision by the Supreme Court in another PPI case, Harrison & ANOR v Black Horse  EWCA Civ 1128 ("Harrison"), expected in spring or summer 2013. See our previous blog and article on Harrison here and here.
Judge Waksman said he believed the Supreme Court decision was likely to have a "significant impact on the many PPI cases already in train". A number of similar applications to stay proceedings pending the Supreme Court decision had been adjourned pending his High Court judgment.
