In the case against Marriott, they requested the discontinuance of the lawsuit pending a preliminary ruling on the question of jurisdiction pending before the European court. The judge declined this request declaring that the lawsuit continues to proceed in the Spanish courts.
In another case against Diamond Resorts and Tasolan, the defendents appealed against the decree that ordered the embargo on their assets and accounts. This was dismissed by the judge.
Finally, in two of the Diamond cases, the judge declined the jurisdiction issue raised by the defendant which declares the Spanish Courts competent to process the claims.
All cases mentioned above will now proceed to the next step.
