Waiter withdraws case against hotel once owned by Sean Quinn

A WAITER who claimed he injured his back lifting trays working in a hotel once owned by bankrupt billionaire Sean Quinn has withdrawn his High Court action.

Robert Miloch had claimed he could not lift his nine-month-old baby because of the injury sustained at the Slieve Russell in Ballyconnell, Co Cavan, two years ago when he was earning about €89 for about ten hours work per week.

Mr Miloch, originally from Poland, of Main Street, Ballyconnell, has sued Quinn Hotels Limited of Dublin Road, Cavan, and the Slieve Russell Hotel Ltd with offices at the same address. The defendants had denied his claims.

Today, at the start of the second day of the hearing, Mr Justice Sean Ryan was told the case had been withdrawn and the action could be struck out.
