Patrick Crilly (25) from Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, was awarded Aus$350k (€285k) after being beaten by a pub security guard in Sydney in an unprovoked attack. The incident took place in December 2008 when Mr Crilly was attempting to help a friend who had become involved in a fight. The security guard punched him on the jaw, causing him to fall to the ground and bang the back of his head on concrete. He subsequently lost hearing in his right ear, has balance problems and has suffered bleeding on the brain.
