Reasons for stopping the proceedings are unknown.

Earlier, the Commercial Court of Moscow reviewed two lawsuits by the company against the rulings of the Central Directorate of the Federal Customs Service over classification of Apple Watch. Lawsuits were dismissed on May 17 and June 1. Currently these dismissals are being appealed.
