The claim by The Kirk for the £3220 to be returned by Hookson, which was tasked with updating the Church's identity, was yesterday thrown out by Edinburgh Sheriff Court, reports The Herald.
Giving evidence, Jennie Rutte, communications manager for Church of Scotland explained that the church did not want people to think it had spent money to change its identity while the threat of redundancies were hanging overhead.
The Church initially denied any work being undertaken by the agency and informed The Drum that the story was untrue.
Speaking to The Herald, Bryan Hook, managing director of Hookson, said: “If they have suffered repuHtational damage that is in their court. They were disingenuous and did not confirm a contract with my company and this fuelled suspicion.”
