My thread on the interim decision of the Swiss Federal Tribunal in the @caster800m case.

Full decision in French at bger.ch/ext/eurospider…

It highlights key features of the #LexSportiva & the ‘complicity’ of Swiss law in sheltering it from review.

#Sportslaw #CAS
1. The #SFT reminds us that its control of #CAS awards is narrow. Hence, it orders interim measures only if it is ‘very likely’ that an appellant will prevail.

This is because Swiss law is traditionally favourable to international arbitration.

2. This is extremely problematic because #CAS arbitration unlike international arbitration is in general not based in consent (see ECtHR in #Pechstein) and should not enjoy the same quasi-immunity from state control.

At the request of my new [South-African, obviously] colleague @MPlagis, I swallowed the 163 pages of the #Semenya award yesterday.

It wasn’t the most pleasant literary experience of my life, but at least I learned what a judicial ‘hot tub’ is.

Here is a book review:

1. In short, what is interesting in the award is actually also what the #CAS forgot to mentioned in its press release, the core of #IAAF’s winning case turns on the concepts of ‘biological males’ & ‘sports sex’.

2. But let me start by regretting that the #CAS hearing was not public because @caster800m’s testimony (see paras 73-87) recalling what she went through since 2009 would have deserved a global audience.

Hi guys, so here is the first episode. Let me know your thoughts or questions. 😊

EPISODE 1: KEDIKE UNITED V. KADIRI MUSA

On the 1st day of July 2016, 21-year old Kadiri Musa signed a five-year contract with #NPFL team, Kedike United FC of Rivers State. He joined from 1/18
Lagos-based club, Ayangalu Warriors FC for a transfer fee of N3 Million Naira.

various interest from high profile clubs in Africa in the summer of 2018.

A South African #AbsaPremiership club, Kuluzula FC were the most interested in him, and it was reported they offered Kedike United about $25,000 USD. Despite the fact that Kadiri Musa wanted the 3/18

Hi guys,#TGIF! 🎉💥😉

In today's #SportsLaw matters: Do you know what happens if a party who filed a Claim before #FIFA's #PSC or #DRC dies before the determination of the suit?

Right or wrong?

Our @Akinyemiesq has penned his thoughts on this. Watch this space, 7pm today. ⚽📚
Good evening, and Kick off!..

The round leather game, as fondly called, used to be a mere recreational activity which attracted some rewards by the way. However, over the last three decades or so, the commercial value of sports, particularly football, has grown astronomically.
The increase in its commercial value has occasioned a reciprocal increase in disputes between persons involved in the game; from coaches, to clubs, to players, etc.

I feel like talking about the inept manner footballers in the #NPFL & #NNL handle salaries being owed them by the football clubs they play(ed) for.

Why do most of them go about begging their Club Chairman, the Governor and/or Commissioner for Sports of the state?

#SportsLaw

...and some even keep mute.
About two weeks ago, a player was at our office and mentioned that his club has been constantly deducting a part of his salary for about 10 months without a reason.
I intend to address this perception of players, especially the mindset that sports employment disputes cannot be tabled before the regular courts.

Below is what players can do.. 👇
