Lynn case settled

Dublin properties once owned by Michael Lynn are at the centre of the latest court case involving the fugitive solicitor.

The High Court in Dublin has settled a case brought by financial institution First Active against Michael Lynn in relation to two Dublin properties.  

According to First Active, Michael Lynn was provided with loans to buy the properties which were subsequently sold on to a third party illegally with none of the loan money being returned to First Active after the sale.

The judge in the case, Mr Justice Charleton, opened the case briefly but was told that issues between the sides had been resolved.

No details of the settlement have been revealed and the case has been adjourned to a later date to allow the parties to finalise details of the settlement.

Michael Lynn was struck off as a solicitor last year and ordered to pay two million euros in fines to the law society.

He has already been found guilty of 57 different charges of misconduct and was thought to be hiding from authorities in Tavira.
