INM executive's case adjourned

INJUNCTION proceedings brought by an Independent News and Media (INM) executive to prevent his dismissal were adjourned yesterday.

Karl Brophy, director of corporate affairs, sought a High Court order to prevent him being dismissed.

This was refused but an injunction was granted restraining INM from acting further on its decision of May 8 to terminate his employment.

The court heard yesterday that it had been agreed to adjourn the matter until June with a request for a trial date on October 18.
