Honest mistake nearly very costly

I wish to draw attention to a very serious oversight regarding the Willie O'Dea affair.
A young reporter put the information into the public arena and an injunction application was brought in court by Maurice Quinlivan in an effort to protect his name.
This injunction was rejected by the court on the sworn affidavit of a minister, barrister and part-time journalist against the word of an ordinary, everyday citizen.
