Mr Justice Colm MacEochaidh was told that discussions between lawyers for Mr O'Brien and California-based Dropbox Inc (an internet file-hosting service) concerning access to material in the Dropbox facility of a Red Flag employee had failed to reach agreement on discovery.

Following failure to reach agreement with Dropbox, Mr O'Brien wanted permission to bring an application seeking non-party discovery against Dropbox Inc and Dropbox Ireland. The judge granted permission to issue that application and returned the matter to next week.

Mr O'Brien is seeking a range of material for his action alleging defamation against Red Flag and some of its executives and employees.
