Stek successful for Liander in civil law procedure regarding damages claim

Stek successfully represented Liander N.V. (‘Liander’) in a civil law procedure before the Court of Arnhem regarding a damages claim. A customer claimed he had suffered damage as a result of a failure on the part of Liander to provide protective earthing for his connection. The Court of Arnhem ruled that Liander did not have a legal or contractual obligation to provide protective earthing for the connection. The court therefore rejected the customer’s claim.
