Tort in personal rights – in district court

It was stated by the Supreme Court in its resolution of 10 July 2015 (ref. no III CZP 36/15).

The questions addressed to the Supreme Court was whether the claim for compensation for the harm caused by the violation of personal rights by publishing press material should be treated as a claim resulting from the press law and, as such, be recognized by the district court pursuant to art. 17 point 3 k.p.c.

In its resolution, the Supreme Court confirmed that the answer to that question is positive and regardless of the amount in dispute, such cases should be handled by the district court.
