A CLAIM for damages over an injury caused to a two-year-old girl when a finger got trapped in the metal lid of a sugar dispenser has been described as "another case of compensation culture gone mad".

The President of the High Court Mr Justice Nicholas Kearns, made the comment when he dismissed an appeal brought over the case, which had been rejected earlier this year in the Circuit Court.
