Case abstract

SWITZERLAND: Tribunal Cantonal du Vaud 24 December 1997

Case law on UNCITRAL texts (CLOUT) abstract no. 257

Reproduced with permission from UNCITRAL

A Danish seller, plaintiff, delivered furniture to a Swiss buyer, defendant, and commenced a lawsuit requesting payment of the purchase price.

The court did not find it necessary to determine whether the case fell within the scope of the CISG since both the CISG (article 53) and Swiss domestic law (article 211 of the Swiss Code of Obligations) led to the same result, namely, that the buyer was bound to pay the price. (Nevertheless, the action was dismissed for procedural reasons.)
