Rory McIlroy phone probe bid is rejected by High Court
The Republic's High Court has refused Rory McIlroy's former management team's applications for orders seeking inspection of the golfer's mobile phones.
Mr Justice Raymond Fullam also refused orders seeking discovery of the golfer's phone bills and inspection orders of the mobile phones of consultant Donal Casey, who later became CEO of Rory McIlroy Inc, and of Sean O'Flaherty, the golfer's assistant.
Judge Fullam said that they had been looking for inspection of eight mobile phones and any computers used by the golfer at any time between October 2011 and December 2013.
"The proposed forensic examination of the phones is a speculative exercise which goes beyond the parameters of the evidence."
