On July 22 2014, the provisional judge of the District Court of Oost-Brabant gave a positive judgement in a short law suit that a client (hereinafter ‘A’) of Schelstraete Equine Lawyers (EUAEL Alliance Partner) initiated in order to lift the seizure from her horses. Schelstraete Equine Lawyers assists clients with similar problems on a regular basis. When horses, real-estate, bank accounts or horse trucks are under seizure, most clients are experiencing severe inconvenience and suffer significant financial loss.‘A’ was recently confronted with a seizure on her horses which seriously hampered the daily care and training of the horses. For this reason European Equine Lawyers decided together with ‘A’ to start a short law suit.
The provisional judge ruled in favour of ‘A’ by deciding that the seizure will be lifted if the counterparty has not provided a bank guarantee for the amount of € 10.000,- before a certain date.
This is a great outcome for A because either the seizure is removed or she has the guarantee that she will receive proper undamagement for her financial loss caused by the seizures when the judge in the procedure on the merits decides that the seizures were placed unlawful by the Counterparty.
‘A’ was assisted by Mr. L.M. Schelstraete of Schelstraete Equine Lawyers (EUAEL Alliance Partner)
