Decision ID: 001737

In October 2005 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that in June 2005 the Commercial Court in Rennes had rendered a judgement in respect of a claim for loss of income by an oyster grower in Morbihan, which had been rejected by the 1992 Fund on the grounds that there was not a sufficient link of causation between the alleged loss and the incident and the claimant had not proved that he had suffered a loss in 2000. It was noted that the Court had rejected the claim, pointing out that the assessment made by the Fund’s expert had shown that the claimant had achieved higher sales figures in 2000, ie the year after the incident, than in the previous year, and that the claimant had not established that there was a direct link of causation between the loss, if any, and the incident.
