Legal bid against Stokes brothers over cafe adjourned

LEGAL proceedings against brothers Simon and Christian Stokes over their operation of Bang Cafe have been adjourned to May at the High Court.
Mayfair Properties Ltd, the company that operated the restaurant at Merrion Row, Dublin, was wound up in January last year with debts of €2.4m.
Both brothers consented earlier this month to orders restricting them, for a period of five years, from acting as directors of companies unless those firms meet minimal capital requirements.
Tom Murray, liquidator of Mayfair, has yet to indicate to the court if he intends to proceed with a separate application for orders disqualifying them from involvement in the management of any company on grounds of unfitness.
When the case was mentioned yesterday, Richard Burke, for the liquidator, told Mr Justice Brian McGovern the sides were consenting to this matter and related issues being adjourned to May 16 to facilitate exchange of legal documents.
