FC Barcelona are once again forced to go back to court to face a €100 million lawsuit filed against them by a company called Muro Cortina Modular Publicidad (MCM) who are demanding the mammoth amount in damages for breaching of a contract.
The first day of hearing is scheduled to begin on Monday and will be presided over by judge Antonio Morales, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.
Barcelona will be represented by Jordi Moix in the initial interrogation.
The MCM, meanwhile, will have Joan Olivé (former general manager under Laporta), Sandro Rosell (former club president), Antoni Rossich (former general manager under Rosell), Javier Faus (current vice-president), Joan Laporta (former club president) and Sol Daurella (executive president at Coca-Cola Iberian Partners) to represent them.
MCM's owner Antonio García Valdecasas claims Barcelona are guilty of breaching a contract he signed with then club president Sandro Rossel after both parties had reached a decision over terminating a precious contract signed by the club under Joan Laporta's presidency.
