Cobalt has successfully represented the Central Election Commission of Latvia in a claim before the Department of Administrative Cases of the Supreme Court of Latvia.

According to Cobalt, on October 31, 2018 the Court "adopted a judgment whereby Cobalt's client, the Central Election Commission of Latvia, was granted a favorable judgment in a case initiated by the 13th Saeima election candidate Janis Klauzs regarding the validity of the results of October 6 elections of the Parliament of Latvia. The Supreme Court’s ruling is final and cannot be appealed."

Cobalt reports that "the claimant had filed two applications with the Supreme Court, requiring annulment of the election results and invalidation of a decision taken by the Central Election Commission. The court did not find any errors on the part of the Central Election Commission or the electronic vote counting system's administrator. The Supreme Court stated that the election results had not been manipulated as a result of an illegal internal or external interference in the electronic vote counting system. First meeting of the newly elected Parliament of Latvia took place on November 6."

The Cobalt team was led by Managing Partner Lauris Liepa.
