Case abstract

SWITZERLAND: Cantone del Ticino, La seconda Camera civile del Tribunale d'appello 15 December 1998

Case law on UNCITRAL texts (CLOUT) abstract no. 258

Reproduced with permission from UNCITRAL

A Chilean company, plaintiff, brought a lawsuit against a company, defendant, that had its place of business in the British Virgin Islands.

The court held that the CISG did not apply, because the relevant sales contract was concluded not with the defendant, but with another company that, although allied with the defendant, had its place of business in Chile. The Convention applies only to contracts between parties in different States (article 1(1) CISG).
