In a German-language decision dated 11 February 2010, published on 29 March 2010, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court dismissed an appeal against a tribunal's decision that it had jurisdiction over a request for a declaration that damages were due for breach of an arbitration clause. The Court dismissed the appeal because it had not been filed in time. However, it also held that the tribunal's declaration concerning damages for breach of an arbitration clause did not violate Swiss public policy.
