In a French-language decision of 3 October 2011, the Swiss Supreme Court ruled that an athlete's right to be heard was not violated by the fact that she had not been assisted by the tribunal-appointed lawyer at the initial stage of the proceedings. The Supreme Court also re-affirmed that the CAS was entitled to investigate a case itself and thus remedy any possible inappropriate conduct in first instance proceedings.
