Firm ordered to pay KD 67,000 to attorney for legal services

KUWAIT CITY, June 28: The Administrative Court, presided over by Judge Salem Al-Rashidi, instructed a company to pay KD 67,000 to Attorney Yusuf Hussein for the legal services he provided based on the contract which they signed, in addition to the legal cost he incurred for the case. Case files indicate that Hussein filed the lawsuit against the company accusing it of refusing to pay KD 47,000 which the company owes him for the legal services he provided for the company as indicated in the contract signed between the plaintiff and the defendant. Hussein disclosed he tried to approach the defendant to settle the matter amicably without the need to go to court, but the latter did not show any interest; thus, he was forced to resort to the judiciary.

Meanwhile, the Administrative Court presided over by Judge Nasser Al-Atari has nullified the decision issued by the Ministry of Higher Education to refuse the evaluation of the bachelor degree in accounting that a Kuwaiti citizen obtained from a Jordanian University. During the court session, the plaintiff counsel Attorney In’am Haider explained that her client decided to further his education outside the country after completing his schooling in Kuwait. She said the Cultural Office at Kuwait Embassy in Jordan had approved the admission when her client who had registered for programming engineering had later changed his specialty to accounting.

However, after the plaintiff graduated in 2013 from the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, the ministry denied the evaluation of his certificate with the excuse that ministerial decision 172/2009 had restricted the specialty and that he did not seek prior approval before joining the program, which violated decision 602/2007.
