BridgeWinners has just released the following statement:
Bridge Winners has learned that the European Bridge League Disciplinary Commission has reached a verdict in the case against Lotan Fisher and Ron Schwartz: they are each banned from EBL events and activities for 5 years and are banned from playing as a partnership for life. They also have to pay the cost of the investigation and prosecution. The reasoning behind the decision has yet to be released; it is expected shortly. The appeal time period begins after the full decision is released. That appeal is likely to go directly to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
Lotan Fisher and Ron Schwartz posted on their Facebook page the following comment: ” EBL decision is also unfortunate, but mainly wrong. We’ll continue to fight to prove our innocence.”
