Appeal of BKK für Heilberufe will be rejected

25.06.2007

In its hearing on 21st of June 2007 the Higher Regional Court Düsseldorf clarified, that it is going to reject the appeal of BKK für Heilberufe against the judgement of the regional court Düsseldorf from 2nd of May 2006. The judgement will be pronounced on 20th of September 2007.

Since the senate is not willing to permit a revision at the Federal Court of Justice, DAPO expects that the complaint of BKK für Heilberufe will be rejected finally with the Higher Regional Courts' judgement.

With the hearing DAPO sees its opinion to consider the complaint from the first as unfounded confirmed.

In January 2005, BKK für Heilberufe brought an action for damages of EUR 391 million against DAPO. The complaint was already rejected at the first instance by the regional court Düsseldorf. This decision is now confirmed by the Higher Regional Court Düsseldorf.
