U2 Win Memorabilia Court Case

Irish rockers U2 won their court case against a former stylist over the ownership of several distinctive items of memorabilia today (05JUL05).

The VERTIGO hitmakers refuted LOLA CASHMAN's claims she had been given the items - which are worth circa $6,300 (GBP3,500) and include 200 photographs, as well as a pair of trousers and a Stetson hat frontman BONO once wore - were given to her while working with the band on the 1987 Joshua Tree tour.

However, JUDGE MATTHEW DEERY ruled at Dublin, Ireland's Circuit Court that Cashman had taken the items without permission from her then employer - and ordered her to return them all within seven days.

He said, "It seems to me that Ms Cashman's version of events, the giving of the hat, is unlikely to have occurred."

Judge Deery went on to pour doubt over Cashman's account of Bono running around backstage after giving her the trousers he was wearing.

Last week (ends03JUL05), Bono testified that he did not give the items to Cashman because they were very important to him and he was shocked to discover they had been put up for sale.

Cashman published an unauthorised biography of the band - INSIDE THE ZOO - last year (04), which reportedly upset U2.
