The reason for the conflict between plaintiff Krivoshapko A.V. and “Southern Kuzbass” Coal Company has become an illegal, according to the plaintiff, use of the patented invention. Resolving the dispute as the first-instance court, the Mezhdurechensk City Court of the Kemerovo Region considered the claims of Krivoshapko A.V. regarding the termination of the use of the invention and the recovery of the damages as unreasonable and refused to satisfy the statement of claim.
Subsequently, the plaintiff appealed the decision of the court, and the case was transferred for consideration to the Kemerovo Regional Court. The lawyers of Zuykov and Partners, who were representing the interests of PJSC “Southern Kuzbass” Coal Company,” disagreed again with the claims of Krivoshapko A.V. and stated reasonably the defendant’s position in the response to the appeal petition. The Court of Appeal agreed with the point of view of Zuykov and Partners and ordered to leave the decision of the Mezhdurechensk City Court of the Kemerovo Region of 23.04.2019 in case No. 2-3/2019 (2-137/2018) unchanged, and to leave the plaintiff’s appeal petition without satisfaction.
