Decision ID: 001632

In March 2005 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that in December 2004 the Commercial Court in Saint-Nazaire had rendered a judgement in respect of a claim for alleged losses in 2002 by an oyster grower in the Department of Loire Atlantique. It was noted that the claimant had been compensated by the 1992 Fund for losses suffered in 2000 and 2001, but that the Fund had rejected the claim for losses in 2002 on the grounds that there was not a link of causation between the alleged losses and the incident. The Committee noted that the Court had agreed with the Fund and had rejected the claim.
