FINLAND - The District Court of Southwest Finland this week rejected a claim by the bankruptcy estate of Oy Primula Ab against Finnish meat processor HKScan.
The court issued an interlocutory ruling by which said an action for damages submitted against HKScan Corporation and HKScan Finland Oy by the bankruptcy estate of Oy Primula Ab was patently unfounded.
Primula sued HKScan for breach of contract concerning initial investigations carried out in 2009 and 2010 by HK Ruokatalo (today HKScan Finland Oy) and Primula related to potential collaboration between HKScan and Primula’s Järvenpää production site at Järvenpään Herkkutehdas Oy.
The District Court denied the claim for damages and additionally ordered Oy Primula Ab’s bankruptcy estate to pay HKScan’s legal fees.
The court ruling is not yet final and binding.
