In two French-language decisions dated 12 January 2011 and published on 16 February 2011, the Swiss Supreme Court dismissed two petitions to set aside an award by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The Supreme Court held that the petitions, filed more than thirty days after the receipt of a fax copy of the award, were timely as the time period only started running from the receipt of the award by registered mail.
