Seems a bit strong to get money and claim to be defamed about it. I've been questioned about the legitimacy of money before when buying or selling in various shops or restaurants, its a tad irritating but not giving me an anxiety attack.
Compo culture. Probably needed the money to get a curry. .
Not a small chap.
Even worse is claiming that the local Garda did tests on the note to confirm it was genuine ,only for local Gardai to take the stand as tell the court no such tests are done at any stations and they were not asked by anyone on the particular day at the station ,
So it is blatantly obvious he's lying about what he is claiming,
But expect him to receive compensation of some sort
Wasters , how are we entertaining them , the mind boggles
Well he has. €5k awarded by the circuit court. The pub has appealed it to the high. If overturned and the costs are awarded against him in the high, he won't be drinking any pints for awhile.
A fairly sensitive soul. A 53 year old delivery driver I would have thought would be used to the trials and tribulations of life. Obviously not, especially with no win no fee solicitors about!
Fast food delivery man, I'd say he takes some work home with him.
We have turned into one compo chasing, litigious little country.
Wait a minute.
His story is that he left the pub, got it checked by the Gardaí and then went back into the pub to inform the barman that the Gardaí had verified it was real.
The Gardaí - on the surface of it, as credible a witness you could have in an Irish court case - have denied this and said they don't even have such a machine to check the legitimacy of notes.
And he WON the case?
What the fúck is wrong with the courts?
I thought defamation had to be written/published...
A friend of mine clipped another drivers wing mirror in traffic and they claimed for whiplash.
cars were barely moving , the claimant said she couldn't attend work, my friend knew where she worked ( polish community , they all know each other ) and went and took pictures of her at work and her car being there and gave them to the insurance company but they said they couldn't use them .
They also said they were going to pay out as when the judge sees there was impact he will rule against them , over ten grand the c##£ got for a broken wing mirror.
My friend had to sell their car and go down to one car between them after the claim as the insurance was too high , this country is a joke when it comes to claims
The bottom button on the shirt said "fcuk this" and let go...
Haha the gut hanging out in the picture of him and all! Maybe he needs the money for tailored clothes!
"Under common law, to constitute defamation, a claim must generally be false and must have been made to someone other than the person defamed. Some common law jurisdictions also distinguish between spoken defamation, called slander, and defamation in other media such as printed words or images, called libel."
According to wikipedia it wasn't even defamation.
