Supreme Court reserves judgement in appeal against €31bn promissory notes

The Supreme Court has reserved judgement in Joan Collins’ appeal over the High Court’s rejection of her challenge to the €31bn promissory notes.

The Independent TD claims the 2009 issuing of the controversial IOUs to bail out Anglo Irish Bank and other financial institutions was unconstitutional.

The appeal concluded before a six-judge panel today following the death of Mr. Justice Adrian Hardiman last month.

The court will deliver judgement at a later date, but a fresh appeal will be needed if the panel is split on their decision.
