Norris settles claim for €30,000 for PR services
SENATOR DAVID Norris has settled a €30,000 Circuit Civil Court claim for public relations services provided to him during his presidential election campaign.
Paul Allen Associates PR, Upper Mount Street, Dublin, had sued the Senator for an alleged outstanding fee of €30,000, which the PR firm claimed was part of an overall €86,200 contract for media relations and communications.
Barry Lennon, for the PR firm, told county registrar Susan Ryan in her motions court yesterday that the proceedings had been settled and could be struck out.
Cormac Clancy, for Mr Norris, North Great George’s Street, Dublin, said the proceedings had been settled by consent. He said he could not disclose details of the settlement.
Paul Allen’s PR firm claimed in a civil bill that it had a contract dated October 11th, 2011, with Mr Norris through his election agent, Liam McCabe, for the presidential campaign.
The company claimed the contract had been backdated to September 29th, 2011, to include agreed services already rendered, and provided for the payment of three instalments by Mr Norris.
