High Court to rule on Denis O’Brien injunction

The High Court will rule today on RTE’s bid to vary a court injunction preventing them from airing details of Denis O’Brien’s banking arrangements with IBRC. Public Domain Image Mr O’Brien contends the information is private and should remain so. RTE is asking the High Court to vary the terms of an order preventing them from broadcasting details of Denis O’Brien’s banking arrangements with IBRC. The temporary injunction was handed down last month. However since then –  many of the details emerged in a statement made by TD Catherine Murphy under privilege in the Dáil. It has since been ruled that Deputy Murphy did NOT break Dáil rules in making the comments.  Last week the court clarified that the order did not extend to Dáil privilege but RTE wants the court to reconsider its scope. A decision is expected today.
