We have already described about the course of this complex case. Let’s recall the key facts:
At the end of 2019, one of Scania’s dealers filed a lawsuit against the company to recover UAH 123 million of alleged lost profit and service fees.
In September 2020, a judge of the Commercial Court of Kyiv oblast satisfied the claim in full, despite the complete lack of evidence.
A week later, the judge, who made the controversial decision, resigned. That prevented the High Council of Justice from opening proceedings at Scania’s complaint.
The appellate court, composed of various panels, considered Scania’s complaint against this decision for 8 months.
The case received wide publicity: its outcome was watched by the Verkhovna Rada, the Swedish Embassy, representatives of the business community and the media.
The lawyers of VB PARTNERS, challenging the decision of the court of first instance, noted the complete unfoundedness and far-fetchedness of the dealer’s claims.
On June 24, the Northern Commercial Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the first instance and collected court fees in the amount of more than UAH 1 million from the dealer.
The project was carried out by attorneys-at-law Oleksandr Lukianenko and Stanislav Yena.
