On 1. April 2015 the lawyers of 17 Bundesliga-Clubs on the one side and International Handball Federation and the German Handball Federation on the other side met for a hearing at the court of Oberlandesgericht Düsseldorf. In the first instance the court Landgericht Dortmund had decided that the plaintiffs do not have to release their foreign national team players to the respective National teams, as the statutes of the International Handball Federation are not in accordance with European Competition law. The judge Prof Kühnen criticized the decision of the 1st instance partly and raised questions which the parties will have to answer during the next 10 weeks. The next hearing in court is scheduled for 24th June 2015. GB
