Nevin court application adjourned15/02/2013 - 18:08:56
The High Court has today reserved its decision on a preliminary issue that forms part of a civil action aimed at stopping Catherine Nevin inheriting any of her late husband's estate.
Tom Nevin's brother and sister asked High Court President Nicholas Kearns to rule on a preliminary issue that evidence at Mrs Nevin’s trial, and her conviction, are admissible as part of their action to fully disinherit her as well as for damages over his wrongful death.
Mrs Nevin (aged 61), who has always denied having any involvement in the murder, claims that evidence of her conviction should not be used in the civil action.
In a counter-claim, Mrs Nevin seeks declarations that she is entitled to her late husband's assets, or part of them, by virtue of survivorship and the laws of intestacy.
Following the conclusion of submissions from both sides today Mr Justice Kearns reserved his judgment.
The Judge did not indicate when he would be in a position to give his decision.
