“Agency staff members and I read the full text of judge Svetlana Novikova’s verdict on the case with great attention and interest. Notably, not a single claim from Alexander Tuzov has been accepted by the court. In that regard, we definitely support the court in full,” he stressed.
Also, Ivan Malikov said he was satisfied over the fact that the scare tactics used by Alexander Tuzov against the judge have failed.
“The argumentation by Tuzov, who always attempted to press down the judge with his authority as a former FSB officer, built his narrative mostly on emotions, some cause-and-effect epileptic trees bordering on conspiracy theories – in a nutshell, just like Pavel Polosin described it earlier in the year. On the contrary, our narrative was based solely on norms of law – everything according to legislation. Moreover, we made a step forward to Tuzov by the end of the case review and reduced the claim amount to the minimum, albeit to no appreciation in return,” he explained.
“Overall, the court verdict is based on solid argumentation. As for the amount of compensation, this is a different matter which we are currently studying further,” Ivan Malikov added.
As PenzaNews reported earlier, the Penza region Arbitration Court ordered individual businessman Alexander Tuzov pay to “VolgaInterMedia” 265,000 rubles of compensation for illegal use of PenzaNews copyrighted photos, as well as compensate the latter’s legal fees of 6,800 rubles.
As a result, overall Alexander Tuzov will have to pay 271,800 rubles, as well as any additional legal dues.
