Dismissal of $28.3 mln suit against State Radio Frequency Commission upheld
MOSCOW, December 15 - RAPSI, Natalia Belova. A court has upheld the court dismissal of a $28.3 million lawsuit filed against the State Radio Frequency Commission and the Communications Ministry, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com).
The lawsuit centers on the commission's failure to consider applications for frequency bands.
The Moscow Commercial Court held against Saturn, Modul and StroyResurs on June 15 in their claims against the State Radio Frequency Commission and the Communications and Mass Media Ministry. The decision came into force in September after the appeals court upheld the ruling. The claimants then challenged the cassation court's judgment, which was dismissed on Thursday.
The companies demanded radio frequency bands to set radio communications and data transmission channels for several regions.
Each claimant sought to recover 300 million rubles ($9.6 million) in compensation for the losses they sustained after the commission failed to consider their frequency band applications.
