Today, Juventus were dealt with bad news as their lawsuit of €444m was rejected by the TAR court.
Juventus’ appeal for damages totalling to €444m from the FIGC and CONI has been rejected by the TAR court today. The Italian champions were seeking compensation as they felt they were unfairly treated during the calciopoli scandal in 2006. However, the TAR court didn’t see it that way and rejected their appeal.
The TAR maintained that “the case has already been dealt with previously in 2006,” when Juventus withdrew and instead took their chances in an arbitration with CONI. The bianconeri, however, lost that appeal as well and then proceeded to take it to the TAR court. After being stripped of two Scudetti, Juventus are still seeking retribution today. It remains to be seen what their next step will be.
