Irvine wins - and loses

EDDIE IRVINE was awarded damages of around $3000 this week resulting from his High Court victory over the Talksport radio station which had used his image to promote its programs - without his permission. The judge said that $3000 was a reasonable sum for damages.

However this is bad news for Irvine as he last year rejected an offer of settlement from Talksport for $7500 and so has been ordered to pay costs, which could amount to anything up to $500,000. The judge said that the legal teams could appeal his decisions but noted that further legal action will push up the costs still further.
