The initial procedure originated when a woman was evicted from the hairdresser salon she ran within a hotel in Puerto del Carmen, which also offered a spa service linked to the hotel.
So she decided to file a lawsuit for forced dismissal, hiring the services of this lawyer, who lost the sentence of first instance and also the opportunity to appeal, by registering the letter after the deadline. In this regard, the court ruling, which has now been ratified by the Supreme Court, pointed out that the plaintiff's relationship with the hotel exceeded a simple lease contract for use, that it was a "complex relationship", and that he did have a chance of having won the lawsuit., to pay jointly and severally the amount of 5,000€ to the affected party, for non-pecuniary damage.
Therefore, it upheld the lawsuit that the woman decided to file against her lawyer. In that judgment, the Court refused to set compensation equivalent to the money that the plaintiff claimed from the hotel, but it did sentence the lawyer, together with his insurer , to pay jointly and severally the amount of 5,000€ to the affected party, for non-pecuniary damage .
After that ruling, the lawyer decided to file an appeal with the Supreme Court, which has not even been admitted for processing and the court has ratified the sentence.
