As per the court records, a lawyer had filed a lawsuit demanding execution of an earlier judgment which obliged a bankrupt contractor to pay him Dh10,000, out of his shares valued at Dh84,000.
The lawyer was arguing the case on behalf of the workers whose dues were left unpaid by the contractor.
The workers had filed a counter-suit, demanding the payment of all their dues.
Rejecting the lawyer’s plea, the court noted that the bankrupt contractor’s remaining money represented part of the dues of the workers.
The lawyer challenged this verdict at the Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal, which rejected his petition.The lawyer then moved the Federal Supreme Court, which also turned down his petition.
