An appeal was filed against Uteir to the French Court of Appeal
On April 2, 2012, ATR 72 210 plane operated by UTair airlines rashed near Tyumen. Out of 43 people on board (39 passengers and 4 crew members), 31 died, 12 survived and were hospitalized. On April 11, one of the victims died; another victim died on April 19.
Lawyers of DTK Partners, together with American and French lawyers, filed a lawsuit in a French court against the French aircraft manufacturer ATR-72 and UTair Airlines. Due to the fact that the court of first instance dismissed the lawsuit on the basis of the lack of jurisdiction of the French court, lawyers of DTK Partners filed an appeal on the decision of the court of first instance.
