U2 wins legal case over memorabilia

05 July 2005 22:07
The rock group U2 has won its case against the band's former stylist, Lola Cashman, over the return of memorabilia.

The Dublin Circuit Civil Court ruled that Ms Cashman must return the items in seven days.

Judge Matt Deery said that it was extremely unlikely that a band as successful as U2 would have taken the case if the subject matter was not important to them.


The judge said Ms Cashman's account of being given a number of items by the band was unlikely to have occurred.

U2 had been seeking the return of a Stetson hat, a pair of metal hoop earrings, a pair of black trousers and a green sweatshirt, which were worn by Bono during the 1987 Joshua Tree tour.

The band took the case in 2002 after Ms Cashman attempted to put the items up for auction.

The two-day trial last week heard evidence from Bono, U2 manager Paul McGuinness, crew members and Ms Cashman.

During the trial, Bono had told the court that there was no way he would have given her the items.

However, Ms Cashman had claimed the items were given to her by Bono following the tour in 1987.

U2, who are due to play a concert in Poland this evening, were not in court to hear the verdict.

Congrats, boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
