Holyoake v Candy – judgment day on Thursday

The long-awaited decision in Mark Holyoake’s claim against Christian and Nick Candy will finally be revealed on Thursday.

Mr Justice Nugee will hand down his decision in the much-publicised case at 10.30 on Thursday 21 December – the last day of the legal term.

Holyoake, a serial entrepreneur, is suing brothers Nick and Christian Candy alleging they “coerced” him out of millions of pounds after they lent him £12m to buy Belgravia mansion Grosvenor Gardens House, SW1, and used heavy-handed intimidation tactics to recoup the money.

The trial started in February and ended back in April.
