In a recent case before the Irish High Court, an appeal by policyholders against a decision of the Financial Services Ombudsman was rejected by the Court on the basis that the limitation period for dealing with claims of mis-selling of financial products had passed. The Court reiterated that the limitation period (of six years) runs from the time of selling the product.  The Court upheld the test in Ulster Bank v. Financial Services Ombudsman [2006] IEHC 323 that the decision reached by the Ombudsman must be vitiated by a serious and significant error or series of errors, in order for such an appeal to be successful before the Court.
