CAS award set aside on jurisdictional grounds

08.03.2018 – Case Number: 4A_432/2017 (06.03.2018)

In a decision dated 22 January 2018, and published on 26 February 2018, the Swiss Supreme Court granted a request to set aside an award rendered by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) for lack of jurisdiction of the deciding CAS Panel.

Based on its interpretation of the dispute resolution clause in question, the Swiss Supreme Court held that the intention of the parties to submit their dispute to arbitration, to the exclusion of state court litigation, was not established with sufficient clarity. (Decision 4A_432/2017.)
