This has been determined by the judges of the Andalusian excessive courtroom, who’ve rejected the provisional execution that the celebration that received the lawsuits had requested as a result of they understood that “the imminence of the celebration” of the occasion – ​​it begins on April 14 – would trigger “irreparable harm.” to present companions. These have already paid the necessary charges for the renewal of the usage of the venues and have made the monetary outlay required for preparations for meeting, bar, safety or musical performances.

“This year at the moment we are calm,” Rafael Labat, lawyer and associate of sales space 173, explains to this newspaper. Labat is much less positive of what might occur subsequent. The ruling that takes away their sales space is prone to being appealed in cassation earlier than the Supreme Court, a step that the house owners of all of the affected modules are ready for the City Council to take as a result of that will make it simpler for them to litigate earlier than the excessive courtroom. The council has not but confirmed that it’s going to achieve this. “If an appeal is made, I do not believe that the resolution will be before the next fair, in which case, if provisional execution is requested again, the City Council would have to see how it resolves,” provides the lawyer.

The magistrates who make up the Third Section of the Administrative Litigation Chamber of the TSJA in Seville – the identical ones who handed down the primary sentence that returned sales space 173 on Juan Belmonte Street to its earlier house owners – agree on this case with the City Council. the members of the sales space for 2 years. The Seville city council was the one who in 2022 dispossessed the appellant household of the three-module sales space for not having submitted the renewal of the license throughout the interval supplied for within the Municipal Ordinance that regulates the April Fair (OMFA), and distributed it amongst three members who have been on the ready record to acquire a sales space.

He also recalled that the economic damage would not only affect the three booths that are the subject of litigation, but also the eight that were awarded in 2023 and that had to give up their position for the benefit of the aforementioned three booths.

The family that requested the provisional execution argued, for its part, that it had already “borne the non-public injury of not having had the honest sales space at its disposal in recent times.” The court rejects the procedural arguments of the council and the owners of booth 173, but does admit that the provisional execution would “cause irreparable collateral damage at the current date” and points out that this measure cannot be agreed “when it is susceptible to produce irreversible situations or damages that are impossible to repair.”

The ruling only refers to booth 173, the first to receive the ruling that agreed to return ownership to the previous owner family, issued on February 22, and the only one for which provisional execution has been requested, as confirmed by the lawyers for the other two booths, 175 and 177, who received a ruling in similar terms, although issued by another section, on March 13.
