    Look what p.ie thought of his appointment. And look who his biggest admirer is.

    It should be noted, he's also a very fine legal historian.

    "The second High Court judge appointed has links to Fine Gael, and he was mentioned as a possible Attorney General before the Government was formed. Mr Justice Kevin Cross, who practised as a barrister before his appointment, is a son-in-law of former Fine Gael minister Patrick Lindsay. He was one of two people who donated €1,200 to Ms Creighton's campaign in 2010, according to her declarations with the Standard in Public Office Commission (SIPO). "He's a friend of mine, I know him well," Ms Creighton said last night. "But I wasn't lobbying for him or anything like that."

    In England they apply a test to negligence cases ... what would the man on the Clapham omnibus consider to be reasonable liability and reasonable responsibility to take due care.

    Imagine the horrors in the Four Goldmines if they had to put themselves in the position of the ordinary working peasant ...

    Don't worry. When she gets diabetes, she can sue for the damage done by the chips that did not fall on the floor.

    and the result of the mindless disconnected drivel coming from our braindead gobsh1te judges....a public liability increase for every business reducing competitiveness and increasing costs

    Not that overpaid judges on massive pensions spreading largess around the 4 goldmines care about that .....

    when a Trump or Le Pen like demagogue come along and promises to tackle the 4 goldmines ...i'll vote for them even if their other policies are utterly barking .....because im sick of the legalised corruption they call the courts

    Be careful. She might sue the state to get her entitlements.
