Decision ID: 003518

In June 2008 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee noted that fourteen claimants in the tourism sector had brought actions for compensation against the 1992 Fund in the Commercial Court in Lorient. It was noted that the 1992 Fund had rejected these claims since the claimants had not provided sufficient information in support of their claims, even after repeated requests by the Fund to do so. It was also noted that in a judgement rendered in April 2008 the Court had rejected the claims since, under French law, an action is time barred (perimée) if there has been no activity by the plaintiffs for more than two years since an action was brought.
