Just in from the RTE news site and doesn't Conor Ridge look like the cat who got the cream as he left the Four Courts in Dublin.  After costs which Rory McIlroy will also pay, it's thought he is $25 million or almost 22 million euro the richer today. 


Golfer Rory McIlroy has settled his multi-million euro case against his former management team Horizon Sports at the High Court.
It comes after two days of talks between the legal teams representing both sides.
The case centred on a contract he signed with Horizon in 2011, which he deemed to be "unconscionable"  because of the commission he would have to pay as part of his activities and sponsorship.
At the High Court today Judge Brian Cregan was told by counsel for McIlroy that the entire matter had been resolved.
Judge Cregan "congratulated" the parties for reaching a resolution.
In a joint statement, McIlroy and Horizon Sports Management said the dispute "has been settled to the satisfaction of both parties who wish each other well for the future".
No details of the settlement have been revealed.
Congratulating both sides for reaching a settlement in the dispute, over a contract the golfer signed in 2011, Judge Cregan said he wished Horizon well with its sports agency into the future and wished McIlroy success with his sporting endeavours.
McIlroy was not in court for today's hearing. He was in attendance yesterday.
The joint statement was read out by a spokesman for both parties, no further comment was made when representatives of Horizon Sports left the court a few moments later.
The parties have agreed no further comment on the issue will be made.
