In a recent French-language decision dated 17 March 2011, published on 19 April 2011, the Swiss Supreme Court overturned parts of an award rendered by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The Supreme Court held that the CAS had acted contrary to the principle of good faith and had thereby violated the parties' right to be heard. Despite having requested the parties to provide additional information on their expenses, the CAS had rendered its award without awaiting the parties' replies.
