Fantom Foundation received a stunning legal victory in its lawsuit against Korean food tech startup SikSin and CEO Byung-Ik Ahn. In a notable decision, the Civil Division 19-3 of the Seoul High Court ruled in Fantom Foundation’s favor, overturning the lower court’s verdict.

According to a blog post, the 3-judge panel of the High Court also dismissed all claims brought by the plaintiffs and mandated that they cover all litigation expenses.

Fantom’s Legal Victory and Court Ruling

The legal battle concerned allegations of unmet service agreements and plagiarism. In an earlier judgment, the Seoul Central District Court had ruled in favor of SikSin, awarding them over 198 million FTM. As per the service agreement, they were related to the technical implementation of the Fantom Project within the food technology sector in South Korea.

The Seoul High Court ruled that SikSin and Ahn did not fulfill their contractual duties. These include the integration of Fantom’s technology into the food tech industry and the creation of a viable technical paper for the Lachesis Protocol.

This is another significant win for Fantom following its victory in a default judgment against Multichain, earlier in March. The firm in that instance had requested a Singapore High Court to pronounce Multichain Foundation bankrupt.
