CAS award confirmed in dispute over penalty payments for sports agents

29.01.2016 – Case Number: 4A_568/2015 (10 December 2015)

In a German-­language decision dated 10 December 2015 and published on 29 January 2016, the Swiss Supreme Court rejected a soccer player's petition to set aside a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) award on the ground that it violated his right to be heard and was incompatible with public policy, in a dispute over a contractual penalty payment for the player's sports agents.
The Supreme Court held that A's petition merely criticised the reasoning of the award and the outcome of the case, without coming close to establishing a violation of the right to be heard and/or an incompatibility with public policy. (Decision 4A 568/2015.)
