In a decision of 6 April 2012, the Competition Authority ('the Authority') partially dismissed the complaint of Roland Vlaemynck Tisseur ('RVT') against Mewa ('Mewa') and postponed the investigation of a possible de facto exclusivity ('Aut. conc, Dec. No 12-D-11 of 6 April 2012 concerning a referral by Roland Vlaemynck Tisseur against practices in the manufacture and marketing of industrial towels, comm. A. Wachsmann). This partial dismissal decision was subsequently confirmed in all respects by the Paris Court of Appeal in its judgment of 26 September 2013 (CA Paris, pôle 5, ch. 5-7, 26 September 2013, Roland Vlaemynck Tisseur, S.A., comm. A. Wachsmann).
