A solicitor has issued a High Court writ against Barclays Bank claiming damages for libel or breach of contract after the bank allegedly wrongfully bounced his cheques. Personal injury specialist Michael Friend, a sole practitioner, is claiming damages of up to £50,000 from the bank after four cheques totalling £33,374.04, which he issued from his office, were allegedly dishonoured by the bank.
