Paris, 13 October 2023 - In its ruling of 11 October 2023, the Cour de Cassation (French supreme court) confirmed virtually all the arguments of the 16 September 2021 ruling of the Paris Court of Appeal, which had rejected all of Moneta's claims and ordered it to pay damages to Altamir, Altamir Gérance and Maurice Tchenio to compensate for the harm caused by its constant denigration of them.
Nevertheless, the Cour de Cassation invalidated part of the decision of the Court of Appeal on the grounds that the latter's judges had misinterpreted Moneta's written statements with regard to Altamir's invoicing of management fees, and it referred the case back to the Paris Court of Appeal on this point.
