A lawyer in a personal injuries action where one client’s claim was dismissed as fraudulent and another’s as exaggerated is to receive a €75,000 settlement and an apology after suing a business group for defamation over comments it made after the case.
Limerick solicitor Gerard O’Neill sued the Irish Small and Medium Enterprises Association (Isme) over press releases it published after a High Court judgment in 2019.
