APPELLATE - MEDIA LITIGATION - PROTECTION AGAINST FALSE AND OFFENSIVE STATEMENTS

05.02.2017

The Appellate Court in Belgrade ruled in favor of our client, the prominent director, Emir Kusturica, and obliged two journalists to pay damages due to harm caused by their reporting.   

The lawsuit was filed regarding the text published on an internet media platform in which the respondents stated false and offensive facts concerning the Claimant.  The Claimant demanded non-material loss compensation due to distress caused by false allegations contained in the text.  

Previously, the Higher Court in Belgrade ruled in our favor and held that the report was unsubstantiated and offensive to our client.  The Appellate Court confirmed the legal position but in addition awarded a greater amount of damages for our client.
