Juventus Lawsuit Thrown Out Of Court

calciopoliJuventus’ lawsuite over their punishment for their role in the 2006 Calciopoli scandal has been thrown out by the TAR court.

The current Serie A champions were seeking €444m in damages, citing loss of income and damage to reputation among other things, from the FIGC and CONI for what they perceive as an unfair ruling that stripped them of two Scudetti and saw them relegated to Serie B. Juventus also wanted the reinstatment of the two Scudetti.

However, the Tribunale Amministrativo Regionale has today thrown out their suit, believing that the matter had already been dealt with in a previous appeal submitted in 2006 but later withdrawn, with the club preferring to go to the CONI arbitration chamber, where they lost the case in October of the same year.

The judges therefore ruled that TAR could had no jurisdiction over something which had already been adjudicated saying:

“the TAR cannot rule if the college of arbitration has already done so”.
