Decision ID: 001962

In October 2006 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that in September 2006 the Commercial Court in Saint-Nazaire had rendered a judgement in respect of a claim by the operator of a campsite for losses suffered in 2000 due to the incident, which the Fund had assessed for a lower amount than claimed and although an interim payment was made to the claimant he later refused to accept the balance. It was noted that the Court had held that the Fund had incorrectly deducted the salary received by the claimant as saved overhead and had awarded the claimant the amount claimed. It was noted that the Director was considering whether to appeal against the judgement.
