Priory Hall developer Tom McFeely has won his Supreme Court challenge against a 3 month prison sentence and a million euro fine.
Mr McFeely was hit with the fine and custodial sentence over his failure to address fire safety issues at the Priory Hall apartment complex in Dublin.
The property developer, who was declared bankrupt just yesterday, successfully argued that there was no evidence that he deliberately broke court orders by failing to address fire safety problems at the Priory Hall apartment complex in Dublin.
Tom McFeely had been ordered by the High Court to carry out remedial works at Priory Hall but was sentenced to jail and fined when he did not.
His legal team appealed on the grounds that it was impossible for him to carry out the work because he had been evicted from the site.
Today, the Supreme Court agreed and ruled that the developer could not be held in breach of court orders as he had been ordered from the site by the court.
