Psychologist accused of ‘over-egging’ her pudding as €60,000 injury claim dismissed (via The Irish Times)

Blessing Agbo took case against Trinity College Dublin over fall down steps but videos played in court conflicted with evidence

A judge has dismissed a €60,000 damages claim taken by a psychologist against Trinity College Dublin after finding that she “over-egged her pudding” and exaggerated the extent of her injuries.

Judge John Martin ordered Blessing Agbo, of Greenmount Park, Green Road, Newbridge, Co Kildare, a former psychology student at Trinity, to pay the university’s legal fees in a case.

Ms Agbo (50) told defence counsel Shane English in the Circuit Civil Court that she had bounced down a flight of wet steps after leaving a lecture on the college campus on February 21st, 2017.

Mr English, who appeared for Trinity with Kerry Lyons of Ennis Solicitors, told Judge Martin that Ms Agbo told different doctors she had bounced, cascaded, tumbled and fell head over heels down the steps, injuring her foot, ankle, lower leg, hip, back and shoulder on her left side.
