Developer Seán Dunne (65) has suffered a major setback in his legal dispute with one of his sons over the multi-million euro proceeds from the sale of a Dublin mansion.

Earlier this year the bankrupt 'Baron of Ballsbridge' issued proceedings against John Dunne (32) in New York, where his son lives, over €11.6m he claims is owed to a trust for four of his other children.

But the businessman has suffered a setback after a US court gave permission for his bankruptcy trustee, Richard Coan, to intervene in the case.
