In a German-language decision dated 4 October and published on 10 November 2010, the Swiss Supreme Court confirmed the recognition and enforcement of an arbitral award rendered in the Czech Republic under the auspices of the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic and Agricultural Chamber of the Czech Republic. The Supreme Court rejected, among other things, claims of violation of res judicata and a violation of the parties' arbitration agreement, which provided for arbitration under the auspices of the Czechoslovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
