PwC Legal has successfully represented Estonian writer Sass Henno in court in a dispute initiated by Marti and Karin Kuusik relating to a Henno-authored article published by Eesti Ekspress.
According to PwC Legal, “Marti Kuusik, a former Minister, and Karin Kuusik discontinued their action against the writer Sass Henno. The court order states that Marti Kuusik will pay the procedural costs borne by Sass Henno in the amount of EUR 21 600.”
According to the firm, “Marti and Karin Kuusik sued Sass Henno after Eesti Ekspress, an Estonian weekly, had published a story in which Sass Henno publicly offered Karin Kuusik support to help the latter break free from the vicious circle of domestic violence. Sass Henno says that the decision of the opposing party to discontinue their action and pay all procedural costs represents a landmark victory in the visible and invisible war against domestic violence.”
PwC Legal’s team included Partner Karin Marosov and Lawyer Ingeri-Helena Kakko.
