Dunne in bid to avoid dis­clos­ing his emails

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS -

BANK­RUPT prop­erty de­vel­oper Seán Dunne has launched a le­gal bid to avoid hand­ing over all of his emails to the of­fi­cial han­dling his US bank­ruptcy.

The busi­ness­man is tak­ing the case af­ter a US court found him in con­tempt of court for not pro­vid­ing all of his emails to Richard Coan. The Con­necti­cut bank­ruptcy court also or­dered Google and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany AT&T to pro­vide it with emails from two gmail ac­counts be­long­ing to the fa­ther of seven, who turns 63 to­mor­row.

The court made its rul­ing at the be­gin­ning of this month and two weeks later Mr Dunne lodged an ap­peal. But it will be sev­eral months be­fore the case comes be­fore the US courts with a le­gal source pre­dict­ing it could be at least early next year be­fore the is­sue is re­solved.

The court also or­dered Mr Dunne to pay the le­gal ex­penses and fees of the con­tempt of court pro­ceed­ings taken by Mr Coan which amount to $4,560.
