A crazy amount. Sure to be appealed, given the DeRossa judgment.

This is why juries shouldnt necessarily be trusted. A quadraplegic in a personal injuries action cant get more than €450,000; yet, someone with an injury to their reputation gets €10,000,000.

Madness; and it will undoubtedly be appealed to the SC costing another few quid in legal fees.

The jury should be ashamed of themselves ---absolutely disgraceful.

The judge was even shocked when he heard the total.

Since when can jurys decide on the compensation?

Always, in defamation. There is some opinion that such actions should not be heard before a judge and jury, but a judge only. This might decide the issue.

Lets hope Brian Cowen doesn't hear about this.
The appalling vista when he turns a corner would be too much even for my robust constitution.
