The Court of Appeals for Compensation for Damages between Kim Bo-reum and Roh Seon-young, who competed as national ice skating representatives at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, decided to force adjustment.
On the 11th, the 13th Civil Division of the Seoul High Court (Presiding Judge Kang Min-gu) proceeded with the mediation date of the appeal trial for the damages lawsuit filed by Mr. Kim against Mr. Roh, and ordered compulsory mediation as of that day. Details of the forced adjustment were not disclosed.
The mediation, which lasted about an hour and a half from 3:00 pm on the same day, was attended by the plaintiff Kim, the defendant Mr. Roh, the attorneys of both sides, and Mr. Roh’s mother.
In the private mediation, it is said that after a long discussion, the mediation text was approached to some extent, but a final agreement was not reached.
The two competed in the women’s team pursuit quarterfinals at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, but Roh fell behind in the team pursuit and failed to advance to the semifinals.
At that time, in an interview right after the game, Mr. Kim conducted an interview that seemed to blame Mr. Roh for his sluggishness, and negative public opinion was strong. 토토사이트
In response, Mr. Kim’s side claimed that Mr. Roh made a false claim, and in November 2020, he filed a lawsuit for damages of 200 million won and partially won. However, Mr. Roh was dissatisfied with the first trial, and an appeal was made.
Previously, in the second hearing held on December 9 last year, the judge strongly recommended reconciliation, saying that young players are suffering from the mistakes of adults while conducting cross-examination of the two.
Originally, the court designated the coming 13th as the sentencing date, but decided to set the sentencing date later as it decided to force adjustment.
Compulsory mediation by the court has the same effect as a judgment if there is no objection from both sides within two weeks of the decision.
