On 19th February, 2013, NAMA went head-to-head with Gayle Dunne in the Connecticut Superior Court. Following on from that, it was ordered that NAMA employee John Coleman be “deposed”, meaning that he produce a statement of his knowledge of the case against the Dunnes and submit himself for question by Sean and Gayle’s lawyers for a few hours. The hearing on 19th also made some other directions for the conduct of the case, but significantly, stopped short of allowing the NAMA CEO Brendan McDonagh be deposed at this point, but left it open to the Dunnes to apply for Brendan to be deposed after the Dunnes had finished with John Coleman and studied the additional documentation that NAMA has been ordered to hand over.
This afternoon, we have gotten hold of the entire transcript of the hearing. It is here, and it’s quite lengthy at 140 pages and is 6mb which might take a minute or two for you to download, but it provides a richer sense of proceedings than might have been reported.
There will be an update here when it is fully read.
