Nine cases valued at £242,714
This week, our jurisdiction positive results were:
In eight of the above cases, the Mercantile Court suspended the claim until the jurisdiction object raised by the defendants was heard in the European court. Subsequently, we appealed this decision which has now been overturned and the court ordered all eight claims to proceed at the Mercantile court in Spain.
In the remaining case against Diamond Resorts, the judge declined the jurisdiction issue raised by the defendants and declared the Spanish courts competent to process the claim.
Well done to all involved in these cases.
