Bookmaker Geoff Banks settles dispute with the British Horseracing AuthorityPosted on
Our client Geoff Banks and the British Horseracing Authority (the BHA) have today announced the settlement of the legal dispute between the parties.
The full statement, issued via the BHA, can be read here.
The Racing Post said of the settlement as follows:
“Banks, who originally represented himself, had said the case was a matter of principle rather than money … Speaking to the Racing Post on Tuesday, however, Banks said: “I am very happy. This is a new age of openness and transparency for the BHA. It was an unfortunate event, but this is a positive outcome. They accept errors were made on the day and are not trying to prove a point here. They agreed to cover an element of my legal fees, which was very fair.”
