On January 11, 2008 the Mariy El Supreme Court reviewed the cassation appeal of the RF Finance Ministry represented by the Federal Treasury Service of the Mariy El Republic that is sued for reparation of moral damages by Denis Darovskih. The Mariy El Supreme Court considered the statements of both parties and resolved that there were no grounds to cancel the first instance decision.
