Capita in U-turn over claimant death case - BBC News
A benefit assessment company that threatened legal action to reverse "reputational damage" after a claimant died has dropped its case.
Capita has now decided not to contest the judgement and has apologised "for any additional distress".

Her mother, Susan Kemlo, pursued legal action against the firm for maladministration and was awarded £10,000.

On Tuesday, Capita said it stood by its employee and argued it did not have a chance to defend itself, leading to "significant reputational damage".

In a U-turn, the company said on Thursday it had "considered this exceptional case on an individual basis [and] decided not to contest the original default judgement".
