Gulf News (United Arab Emirates), 19 October 2023: The UAE Court of Cassation has issued a landmark verdict in a case involving the energy drink brand Power Horse.
Power Horse is an Austrian energy drink brand and has its commercial headquarters in Dubai. The Court ordered Power Horse’s partner in the UAE to pay one million Dollars in compensation to Power Horse.
The dispute arose out of a breach of contract. It means businesses in the UAE must now be extra careful with the terms of their contracts. Before the judgment, only individuals were liable to pay moral damages.
Under Federal Law No. 5/1985 (the Civil Code), claimants can seek moral damages as compensation for any non-financial losses sustained from a breach of contract.
