The case is scheduled to come before the court for the first time tomorrow.

Brian Byrne was suspended on October 19, following allegations made by Limerick haulier Brian Cosgrove of Cosgrove Transport.

The port company set up a committee of investigation to examine the allegations against Byrne and another director of the company, Morgan Leahy. Byrne and Leahy are challenging the legitimacy of the investigation committee.
