In a French-language decision dated 3 August and published on 26 August 2010, the Swiss Supreme Court rejected a challenge of an award on the ground of violation of the right to be heard. Among other things, the Supreme Court analysed the interaction between the principles of the right to be heard and jura novit curia (principle that the court knows the law), and confirmed its jurisprudence that, as a rule, the principle of jura novit curia prevails.
