Würzburg/Haibach (dpa/lby) - The Würzburg administrative court has rejected a lawsuit by the Adler fashion stores from Haibach in Lower Franconia for higher corona aid. A court spokeswoman said on Tuesday. An application for approval of an appeal is possible against Monday's decision. The written reasons for the judgment are not yet available.
In autumn 2021, Adler submitted an application for around 43.7 million euros to the IHK Munich and Upper Bavaria, which is responsible for bridging aid III in Bavaria. According to the decision of December 17, 2021, the IHK only approved around 14.7 million euros - too little from Adler's point of view.
The IHK saw this differently and argued that Adler had not proven that the funding requirements had been met for the entire period.
In particular, the period during which Adler found itself in economic difficulties, the effects of its insolvency proceedings and whether the insolvency proceedings of other companies that may belong to the group of companies are detrimental to funding was controversial.
