Man claims mobile phone was damaged by shop

A man who claimed that his phone had been damaged when he left it in for repair, did not have the documents in order to back up his case.

Paul Stokes of 30 Beechlawn, Clonard in Wexford brought his complaint against Mei Mei Lin of 10 Selskar Street in Wexford to the Small Claims Court.

He told Judge Gerard Haughton he was informed in the shop that repairs to the phone would require import of a part from the UK or USA.

Eventually, after it had been passed on for examination by sister shops in Kilkenny and Dublin, he was told it was irreparable.

He told the court that he then brought it to an iPhone inspector who reckoned that parts were missing and damage had been done to the phone.

Appearing for Mei Mei Lin, solicitor Pat McCarthy pointed out that the inspector's report was neither dated nor signed.

The judge adjourned to November 26 and told Stokes he might need to bring the report's author to court on that date.
