Alliance Legal CG has successfully represented the Ekaterinburg Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church, on a pro bono basis, in a RUB 4 million dispute with the Ekaterinburg City Administration over the diocese’s subsidiary liability for the obligations of its Orthodox Kindergarten. The case was brought before the Arbitration Court of the Sverdlovsk Region.

The Ekaterinburg Diocese founded the Orthodox Kindergarten in 2010. The kindergarten would have been located in a two-story non-residential building owned by the city of Ekaterinburg. However, due to the poor state of the building, the kindergarten never began operating. As a result, it was unable to pay rent, which led to its bankruptcy. Three years after the bankruptcy proceedings had ended, The Department of Municipal Property Management of the Ekaterinburg City Administration submitted a claim for the Ekaterinburg Diocese’s subsidiary liability for the kindergarten’s obligations.

According to Alliance Legal CG, the court found that there were no grounds for the plaintiff’s claim and ruled in favor of the Ekaterinburg Diocese.
