Do the National Newspapers of Ireland (NNI) know who they are?

A while ago I wrote to Mr. Frank Cullen trading as National Newspapers of Ireland, seeking to make a Data Subject Access Request. I have recieved a response to that request on NNI headed paper (albeit one which will be the subject of future correspondence). However, as part of that response came the following assertion; “Your access request was addressed to “Mr Frank Cullen trading as National Newspapers of Ireland”. Please note that Mr. Cullen does not “trade as” National Newspapers of Ireland.” […]

The SMDF debacle

That SMDF has failed is, of course, of great concern. It was promoted by the Law Society of Ireland. Its directors were, invariably, past Presidents of the Law Society. Arguably, the failure of the SMDF is a failure of the Law Society. But that is not to say that the Law Society’s members are responsible for that failure. The members had no method of seeking accountability for the activities of the SMDF or the Law Society’s failures relating to it. (Even the High Court is constrained here; the Law Society of Ireland is a corporate body, but a very unusual one; it is not subject to the provisions of the Companies Acts. Most of the jurisdiction of the High Court over corporate bodies is derived from those Acts).

The board has said nothing about the seizure of the company by the Provisional Administrators. Sean Quinn never stops talking about it and issuing press releases and public statements, including TV interviews. Is he in fact in charge of Quinn Insurance? This is possible. Under Section 27 of the Companies Act 1990:- […]

Bloodhounds

The fact that the auditors in that case escaped by the skin of their teeth shows life is going to get difficult for the profession.

Legal Advice

1. It was (arguably) beyond the remit of the High Court inspector to make exhaustive comment on the giving of legal advice to Mr. Jim Flavin (“Flavin”) on the legality of the sale by Flavin of Fyffes’ shares. 2. However, the advice was wrong, the inspector says. (He could hardly say anything else, given that the Supreme Court effectively said the same thing). 3. Consequently, the question as to whether the solicitor who gave that advice was negligent could arise. […]

Cloud Computing: European Data Protection Dangers

Cloud computing is rapidly becoming a buzzphrase in IT-reliant businesses. But while enterprises may be able to save money by moving into the cloud it is difficult to see how they can do so with their customer’s personal information without breaching EU data protection law.
