In the Kirch heirs’ case against Deutsche Bank and Rolf Breuer, the Munich Higher Regional Court tried on 12 October to get an idea about the possible amount of the compensation sum by questioning witnesses. In winter the court had unsuccessfully suggested a payment of €775 million in settlement of all claims. Through his interview the former CEO had deliberately driven the Kirch Group into a corner to get a lucrative contract for the renovation of the ailing company, claim Kirch’s heirs, who are suing for around two billion euros in damages in the civil suit. Judge Kotschy announced that the trial would continue on 16 November.
