Court of Arbitration for Sport

cas-banner2

Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) was created in 1984 as a response to the arising need of an independent and unbias institution that focuses on solving sports-related disputes. It works under the administrative and financial authority of the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS).  The CAS may intervene as long as both of the parties agreed in writing, and the dispute involves a sports-related question. In addition to the two procedures that the parties can benefit in the means of dispute solving, namely arbitration and mediation, the CAS may give an advisory opinion on the matter, if the parties require so. At the same time, the CAS may function as an appeal court.

Mr. King v. WADA is a fictional case based on a legal subject that is discussed many times by many courts before, and is a newsworthy topic for all times: Doping. The Plaintiff, WADA, is bringing the action against Mr. King and the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) on the grounds of an appeal to FIM’s decision on Mr. King’s doping trial.

In this case, it is a certain fact that Mr. King, as an Australian motorcyclist took prohibited substances, yet the foremost question that needs to be answered is whether he had the intention of increasing his performance, and whether he had fault or negligence in his act. Mr.King v WADA includes flexible legal norms that can be interpretated within reasonable boundaries, thus creativity is expected by the participants alongside with legal knowledge.
