NINE JURISDICTION VICTORIES AGAINST CLUB LA COSTA
Published June 19, 2019
M1 Legal are happy to report NINE jurisdiction victories.
After an initial court decision that the cases did not fall under Spanish jurisdiction, M1 Legal appealed the decision which was reversed by the Malaga court of appeal. The defence argued that the cases should not be heard in Spain claiming that the contract fell under English Law. The appeal judge ruled in ALL NINE cases that they can be heard in Spain.
The judge also commented that the UK address used in the contracts is not where any company activity is carried out, leaving the Spanish address which makes the lawsuits valid for Spanish jurisdiction.
The contractual names vary and are listed below:
- Club la Costa UK PLC
- Club la Costa UK PLC Sucursal en España
- Paradise Trading S.L.
All cases will now be re-submitted for judgement.
