Court lifeline for City

Published Add your comment

FA Cup semi-finalists Cardiff were rescued from the brink of financial disaster on Wednesday when a High Court judge rejected a bank´s pre-emptive bid to secure immediate repayment of up to £24million.

Swiss investment bank Langston is suing the club over loan notes which it holds and had sought "summary judgment" - meaning the Championship club should pay up now.

But Mr Justice Briggs, sitting in London, dismissed the claim for summary judgment.
