Contergan Victim Wins Against Former Board Member of the Contergan Foundation

COLOGNE, Germany, June 8, 2017 /CNW/ - In the lawsuit between the plaintiff, Contergan (thalidomide) victim Andreas Meyer, and the defendant and former Board member of the Contergan Foundation, Attorney Karl Schucht, the Bonn Regional Court came to a judgement on 10.5.2017. The judgement is not yet final. The case concerns the question of possible collaboration between Grünenthal and the Federal German Contergan Foundation.

Meyer was and will be represented by Prof. Dr. Jan Hegemann from the law firm Raue Rechtsanwälte LLP in Berlin. Hegemann considers that an appeal against the judgement has a good chance of success.
