Case abstract

SPAIN: Audiencia Provincial Court of Orense 12 February 2004

Case law on UNCITRAL texts (CLOUT) abstract no. 543

Reproduced with permission of UNCITRAL

Abstract prepared by María del Pilar Perales Viscasillas, National Correspondent

The case concerned two Spanish companies in dispute over the existence of a virus in birds that had been sold. The lower court declared the contract void, on the basis of article 1494 of the Civil Code, since it involved animals suffering from an infectious disease, rejecting the defendant's claim that the CISG applied. The appeal court quashed the lower court's decision, holding that the outcome would have been the same if the CISG had been applied.
