Sparebank 1 SR Bank has been ordered by the court to pay most of a bill of 193.000 million NOK after a customer was defrauded on sex club in Barcelona.
The man testified that he was drugged and thought the bank had to foot the bill. The bank were not willing to do so, and they sued the man instead. The Stavanger District Court believed the man’s explanation, and ruled in his favor for the most part, the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv writes.
They found, however, that he had been grossly negligent in 1 of the 12 transactions that were central to the case. This means he has to cover 12,000 kroner himself.
The bank’s lawyer, Hanne Ringnes true, says her client was a little surprised verdict.
– We have to take a thorough look at it. We do not know if we are going to appeal yet, she said.
