6.5.1-8 Can I withdraw a complaint?


Yes, the owner of the rights can withdraw their complaint as long as the cantonal court of second instance has not issued its judgement (Art. 33 SCC). It is important to remember that, if the claimant withdraws a complaint against one of the defendants at a later stage, it will apply to all of the others. The withdrawal of a complaint is final and the complaint cannot be refiled.
