The Story So Far…
Following on from our ‘Resort Appeals Overruled’ article in the last issue, we have an update on the story so far.
After an initial court decision that the case 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 case should not be heard in Spain claiming that the contract fell under English law. The appeal judge ruled that the contractual party i.e. Club la Costa (UK) Sucursal en España is a Spanish entity and the case should be heard in Spain.
All cases with the above contractual name are currently being re-submitted to the court of first instance.
The Appeal Snowball Effect
M1 Legal are pleased to confirm receipt of FOUR more victories against Club La Costa on jurisdiction regarding the above named contractual party.
