Actually there is and because he failed to disclose such information, most likely the policy is invalid in any case. Being caught without insurance is one thing, telling them you'll deliver the certificate to the station and then trying to get insurance after the fact, while failing to disclose a pending prosecution... this is not looking at all good. Legal advice PDQ would seem to be the order of the day.
There is no prosecution pending unless you have other detail that the rest of us don't.

Can u plz update on the courts proceeding?
It was in the papers. He hired Frank Murphy (Cork GAA Parish) who managed to find a loophole in the legislation. Apparently, there is no law that you must have insurance, only that you intend to get insurance so once you say 'I was going to get it tomorrow', you will be fine.....
