U2 Win Memorabilia Court Hearing

from contact music:


Quote:
Irish rockers U2 have won a court case against a former stylist in Dublin, Ireland and will now have a Stetson hat and other memorabilia handed back to them. LOLA CASHMAN had claimed she was given the items, worth 5000 euros (GBP3,400/$6,120), as presents by the band following their 1987 Joshua Tree tour and tried to sell them at Christie's auction house in 2002. U2 successfully sued last year (05) for the recovery of the trademark hat, a pair of earrings, a sweatshirt and a pair of trousers, claiming Cashman took them without permission. Cashman launched an appeal and singer BONO was last month (06) forced to recount his evidence in Dublin High Court. However, today's (15NOV06) ruling means the band will take ownership of all the memorabilia.

U2 win battle against ex-stylist

U2 have been battling for the return of a number of their possessions
Rock group U2 have won a legal battle against their former stylist, forcing her to hand over a cowboy hat and clothes she took from them in 1987.
Singer Bono told Dublin's High Court last month that Lola Cashman acquired the items without permission during the band's Joshua Tree tour.

She insisted they were a gift to her from the star and appealed against a ruling that she must return them.

In a statement the band said they were "relieved" the legal battle is over.


"Proceedings were issued in Ireland very much as a last resort and with great reluctance," they said.

They added that they wished Ms Cashman "well in the future" and they would not be pursuing costs from her, despite being entitled to.

Rosary beads


The possessions were estimated to be valued at 5,000 euros (£3,400).

U2 had been fighting with Ms Cashman over the ownership of a Stetson hat, a pair of metal hooped earrings, a green sweatshirt and a pair of black trousers.

They were also trying to retrieve a number of other items which had been seen in her flat, including a video tape and monitor, rosary beads and hundreds of photographs.


Ms Cashman claimed Bono had "plonked" his hat on her head
During the appeal hearing, she claimed Bono was running around in his underwear backstage at the Sun Devil Stadium in Arizona on the last night of the tour when she asked him for the hat.

The court was told he "plonked" it on her head.

In 2002, Ms Cashman put some of the memorabilia up for sale at Christie's.

She claimed two letters sent to the auction house from U2 lawyers seeking their return were defamatory, and began proceedings against the band in the High Court in London.

Thank goodness it's over. I actually respect the fact that they aren't going to pursue costs - to me it proves it's not about money.

this is great news. There was a principle to be upheld here and I'm glad that it worked out. I've always felt that the guys were decent (and not persuing the costs proves that) and that they're ok with most things that ppl do with regard to them. It looks like they take exception to ppl ripping them off and making money out of them though. Good for them. They've worked hard enough to earn it and should give it away the way they choose and not have someone make a quick buck..
