The Commercial Court number 2 of Seville has ruled on the precautionary measures requested by the former Sevilla FC president José María del Nido, who requested the dismissal of the Board of Directors of Sevilla FC headed by José Castro and the appointment of a judicial administrator. Del Nido complained that he had been “prevented from exercising his right to vote” at the last general shareholders’ meeting in which it was decided to remove the governing body of the club.
This hearing took place last Friday, and the judge has ruled in favour of the current Sevilla president, José Castro, so there will be no dismissal of Sevilla FC’s BoD, nor will there be the appointment of a judicial administrator or any of the other measures that del Nido was asking for.
The court denied the adoption of the precautionary measures requested “due to a lack of danger to procedural morality”. The ruling states that the plaintiff “does not explain the legal damage” caused by the maintenance of the current board. In addition, the judge points out the lack of evidence that proves the relationship between the “alleged bad economic situation” of the club and “the permanence of the current board”. In addition, legal fees have been imposed on the former club´s leader.
In this way, the club will continue to maintain its current organisational structure In this case, the lawyer who has defended Sevilla FC has been the legal expert Lucas Fernández de Bobadilla, partner of MA Abogados and
