The defendant, a legal entity, requested the appellate court to dismiss the preliminary injunction issued by the court of lower instance. The preliminary injunction at hand restricted the plaintiff from concluding security agreements until a dispute is adjudicated.
The defendant contested this preliminary reason, among others, on the basis that the plaintiff does not have locus standi. The plaintiff in this case is a legal entity, which focuses on collective consumer protection.
According to the defendant, the consumer himself is the only person who possesses locus standi to submit an application for a preliminary injunction.
