Flamengo loses lawsuit and Guerrero does not have to reimburse R$ 1.8 million for image rights

 

Flamengo suffered a defeat in its lawsuit against Paolo Guerrero, in which it sought the return of R$ 1.8 million referring to the image rights that the player received during the period in which he defended the club, but was suspended for doping.

However, judge Françoise Picot Cully, from the 9th Civil Court of the Court of Justice of Rio de Janeiro (TJ/RJ), considered the complaint made by Flamengo to be unfounded and even condemned the club to pay Guerrero compensation in the amount of 10% of the amount requested, that is, R$ 180 thousand.
