The German doctors in civil court

FYI only, the legal process in the case of Dr Wladow and Dr Elinescu against the German Bridge Federation (DBV) has been delayed again. You may recall that oral proceedings should have taken place today (Dec 10. 2015) having been delayed from August 6. A new date has been set January 28, 2016 (at 11:15 AM, local time). I don’t know if the delay is due to administrative or substantive aspects of the case.

This case is of some considerable interest to the bridge community. Here we have two top level players, banned for 10 years for cheating by the German bridge disciplinary committee, contesting the decision by taking the case to the relevant civil court.

Needless to say, a win by the doctors may affect decisions by other bridge federations – national and international.
