Rosobrnadzor applied to the Arbitration Court of the Sverdlovsk Region with a claim against one of the largest non-state universities in Russia to revoke the license to carry out educational activities. This license was previously suspended. By the decision of the court of first instance, the claim was rejected.
Disagreeing with the said decision, Rosobrnadzor filed an appeal with the Seventeenth Arbitration Court of Appeal.
After accepting the complaint for production and scheduling a court session, Rezolut’s lawyers found that Rosobrnadzor had missed the deadline for filing the complaint.
In the court of appeal, the interests of the client were represented by Vasily Dryga, partner of Rezolut. He managed to convince the 17th Arbitration Court of Appeal that the complaint should not have been accepted for proceedings. Since the court did not immediately return the complaint, the proceedings should have been terminated.
As a result of the trial, the Seventeenth Arbitration Court of Appeal agreed with Vasily Dryga, without establishing grounds for restoring the missed procedural time limit, and terminated the proceedings on the appeal of Rosobrnadzor.
The decision of the court of first instance, adopted in favor of the client Rezolut, entered into legal force.
