At this year’s International Bar Association‘s virtual annual conference, I have the pleasure of moderating a session on managing international litigation, with this wonderful panel:
Sam Hosseini of Stikeman Elliott in Toronto, providing the perspective of outside counsel,
James Menz, Senior Litigation Counsel at Bombardier, sharing his insights from the corporate perspetive
and last but not least Brody Warren of the Hague Conference on Private International Law’s Permanent Bureau in The Hague. Inter alia, Brody will shed light on the use of video technology under the Hague Evidence Convention.
As if Schalke 04 did not have enough problems as it is this season, given their current standing in the Bundesliga, the club through no fault of their own could not play their first-round match in the German Cup. Schalke fell victim to a dispute between two Bavarian clubs, fourth-division side Schweinfurt 05, and newly promoted third-division club Türkgücü Munich. The Bavarian Football Association (Bayerischer Fussballverband, BFV) nominated Schweinfurt 05 for of the 2020/2021 Cup season. However, Türkgücü felt that they should have been nominated, and obtained an injunction in the Munich courts, which prevented the match between Schweinfurt 05 and Schalke 04 to be played as scheduled on 13 September 2020.
