U2 wants its personal effects back

Bono arrives at the Circuit Civil Court, Dublin June 28, 2005

Rock band U2 are taking proceedings against the band’s former stylist Lola Cashman to recover rock memorabilia of the musicians which they claim she wrongly took while she was working with them on their very successful Joshua Tree tour in 1987. In 2002 Cashman tried to sell some of the items—including a cowboy hat, sweat shirt, pants and earrings worn by Bono—at a London auction house. The sales were interrupted by the band’s lawyers, who explained the auctioneers that the items did not belong to Cashman.

Bono and other members of U2 would testify that they hadn’t given any of these things to Cashman. The band hoped the Dublin court would issue a judgment that Cashman should not continue to possess or try to sell any of that materials, including about 200 photos of the tour.
