The Supreme Court has reserved its judgment in the action being taken by former Rehab Group CEO Angela Kerins against the Dáil’s Public Accounts Committee.
Chief Justice Mr Justice Frank Clarke said the one thing agreed in the case is that it is “important and difficult.”
Ms Kerins is appealing the High Court’s dismissal of her action.
She claims two committee hearings in 2014, into money paid to the Rehab Group, amounted to a witch hunt against her.
Ms Kerins wants to claim damages for personal injury, loss of reputation and loss of career and she wants references to her and her employment with the group to be deleted from the committee’s record.
She also wants declarations that what happened to her was unlawful.
The High Court found the courts could not intervene at all in relation to Dáil committee proceedings.
