    Anyone hear of the arrogant swine who tried to sue Sligo GC following being struck by a golf ball while spectating an amateur competition sometime last year…..judge ruled that the club was not negligent and awarded costs against the complainant, he is expected to appeal. He admitted not paying attention and was ‘chatting’ with his mates when the second shot was hit to the green which he claims was ‘wayward’ struck him on the head and ‘knocked him for six’

    What kind of lowlife would sue a 17 year old kid, trying to make his way in the game, for playing a slightly errant shot?

    Did he sue the kid or the golf club?

    Discussion of Court Cases - pending, ongoing or closed
    Discussion of Court Cases, whether they are pending, ongoing or closed is forbidden on boards. Dy discussing cases, there has been an emerging trend of defence teams increasingly looking for these sorts of issues to collapse trials, we are making it clear and stated policy of Boards.ie that you can no longer discuss an active/sitting court case as pretty much any sort of commentary on the issue can be classified as contempt. Offering opinion on the innocence or guilt of the parties involved for example is a definite no-no.
