Cobalt has successfully represented the interests of the Suislepp family against false allegations published in Postimees and Louna-Eesti Postimees relating to Ilvi Suislepp's tenure as a school principal.
According to Cobalt, “since the summer of 2019, more than 30 articles have been published about Ilvi Suislepp in the publications belonging to the AS Postimees Grupp. The series of articles started with the online article of the Postimees newspaper Unprecedential situation: The principal of a small school pressures teachers to give good grades to their relatives. Ilvi Suislepp worked as the principal of Kanepi Gymnasium at the time, and the articles criticized her work in the context of the title. The published articles also concerned Ilvi Suislepp's husband and children.”
According to the firm, “the courts found that the main statements of the published articles about Ilvi Suislepp, as well as the statements about Ilvi Suislepp's husband and children, turned out to be incorrect. As a result of the litigation, the AS Postimees Grupp was [required] to refute incorrect data, supplement, and remove articles.”
Cobalt’s team included Managing Associate Kadri Michelson, Senior Associate Kaidi Reiljan-Sihvart, and Junior Associate Anna-Riin Brett.
