Independent News and Media (INM) is not appealing the High Court's dismissal of its judicial review aimed at quashing the corporate watchdog's decision to seek inspectors to investigate an alleged data breach and other issues.

The application by the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE) to have inspectors appointed has been fixed for hearing before the president of the High Court, Mr Justice Peter Kelly, on July 10.

When the matter returned before Mr Justice Seamus Noonan yesterday, he ruled that the costs of the judicial review application should be paid by INM.

Shane Murphy SC, for INM, had argued that any order for costs should await the decision on whether or not to appoint inspectors.
