DORDA, March 2020

DORDA, March 2020

In principle, commercial contracts and the rights and obligations contained therein remain legally binding, despite the official measures taken to prevent the spreading of COVID-19. However, in connection with travel contracts, the Austrian Supreme Court qualified the outbreak of the infectious disease SARS as a force majeure event that made it unreasonable to perform the contract. Due to the similarity of events, this categorization may also be applied to the current situation...
