Bus driver gets €22,000 after bullying claim

A bus driver who claimed he had been bullied and assaulted by a colleague has been awarded €22,000 damages against Dublin Bus in the Circuit Civil court.

Mihai Pascu told the court he occasionally asked the driver on the shift before him not to leave the cab in a dirty condition.

Mr Pascu, of Foxborough Rise, Lucan, Co Dublin, said his colleague had invited him out of the crew room to apologise and when they got outside he had been punched in the jaw, knocked unconscious to the ground and kicked in the legs and shoulder.

Judge Jacqueline Linnane said she accepted Mr Pascu's account of what had taken place and liability rested with Dublin Bus.
