Cour de cassation, 11 October 2017, M. X, M. Y v. AGA International and International Ski Federation, no. 16-24590

In 2010, during the ski-cross world cup, two skiers collided. The injured skier summoned both his opponent and his insurer, who issued the warranty proceedings against the International Ski Federation, before State Courts. Given the Court of Appeal granted the claims of the injured skier, the Federation prepared an appeal before the Supreme Court raising the existence of an arbitration clause in favour of the Arbitral Tribunal for Sport in the “athletes’ agreement” signed in 2007. For these reasons, the Supreme Court declared itself to have no jurisdiction, as per Article 1448 of the French Civil Code.
