UNCITRAL case abstract

SPAIN: Madrid Provincial High Court, Section 11 [1] 22 March 2007

Case law on UNCITRAL texts [A/CN.9/SER.C/ABSTRACTS/147],
CLOUT abstract no. 1389

Abstract prepared by Marķa del Pilar Perales Viscasillas, National Correspondent

The Spanish buyer purchased a machine from a Swedish seller. The machine was resold to a third party in Australia. It transpired that the machine did not function properly. The buyer made unsuccessful attempts to repair the machine, and was then obliged to refund the price to the subsequent buyer (the second buyer in Australia). The Court considered that there was a fundamental breach by the seller within the meaning of article 25 CISG and a breach of the provisions of article 35(1) CISG. Thus the lower court’s judgement was upheld on appeal.
