This decision dated July 2, 2012 concerns the New York Convention. As you will see, the case did not involve an appeal against an international arbitral award stricto sensu but rather an appeal against a judgment of the Cantonal Court of Schwyz, which had confirmed a decision of the District Court of Höfe as to the enforcement of an international award in Switzerland.

The case involved a football club in Mexico and a Brazilian player. A dispute as to the player’s compensation resulted in a decision of the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber in November 2010, holding that it did not have jurisdiction, whereupon the player filed a claim with the Mexican Conciliation and Resolution of Controversies Commission (“CRCC”). On July 26, 2011, the CRCC found that the claim was time-barred under applicable Mexican law.

On January 23, 2012, the Federal Tribunal issued two opinions in two parallel cases (4A_526/2011 and 4A_528/2011). The opinions are of moderate interest and since they are almost identical and contain no material differences, It is suggested that whoever is interested in this case should read only the opinion in docket 4A_526/2011.
