Sorainen has provided legal assistance to Latvian local newspaper Independent News of Tukums' Editor-in-Chief Ivonna Plaude in a dispute against the Tukums Municipal Council for insulting her honor and dignity.

According to Sorainen, the dispute followed the publication of false and defamatory information about Plaude in the municipal newsletter. Plaude applied to the court in June 2021, asking for the removal of the information and compensation for non-pecuniary damages.

"Although the municipality initially did not recognize the claim, in August 2021 a settlement was reached in the case, as a result of which the municipality undertook to delete the disputed information, as well as to pay compensation to the plaintiff," Sorainen reported.

Sorainen’s team included Partners Ieva Andersone and Andris Taurins and Assistant Lawyer Lucija Strauta.
