After numerous requests to the FIM, one party, the KMSC, which was not a FIM member, filed a request to the CAS. The CAS Panel was chaired by Boris Vittoz, with arbitrators Jean-Philippe Rochat and Olivier Carrard.

Two brothers entrusted the British solicitor Anthony Julius (the opinion of the Federal Tribunal, somewhat unusually, mentions the Arbitrator’s name) with settling a dispute between them. For that purpose, they entered into an agreement in July 2004, providing for ad hoc arbitration in Geneva. They waived any appeal and any rights they may have had to challenge the Arbitrator on any ground.
