ABY was contacted by the Indian company, the major global operator of online card game ‘Rummy’. Every year the client holds world championships. Its final part takes place in different cities of the world, and the best online players can participate.
The last championship was to be held in Sochi. However, Russia closed its borders and introduced pandemic restrictions banning mass events.
The company tried to recover the money prepaid for the services on championship organizing and accommodation, but to no avail. Russian contractor referred to the lack of proof of force majeure regarding relations of the parties, as well as to penalties under the contract.
The judge found defendants objections groundless. The Krasnodar Region Commercial Court satisfied the client’s claims on April 29, 2021.
