The well-known lawyer spent almost an hour on the phone with Martin Callinan before appearing on the Marian Finucane show Â– in which he defended the commissioner and criticised Maurice McCabe for not cooperating with a garda investigation into penalty points.
Sergeant McCabe began defamation proceedings against Mr Kean and RTE on foot of the broadcast, which were later dropped.
