Michael Schumacher’s family sued the German Brunte magazine. The fact is that last year an article with the untruthful information about the health of the seven-time Formula 1 champion was published in this journal. According to the journalists of this magazine, M. Schumacher could already walk with assistance.
This information was immediately refuted by the personal manager of the racer, Sabine Kehm. She emphasized that this article has filed false hopes to the fans of the legendary sportsman.
The lawyer of Schumacher’s family argues that an appearance of this information in the print edition breaks the law on privacy.
Since the hearings will be held in Germany, the chances of winning the race driver’s family are very large. It is assumed that the magazine will pay a fine, which can reach 100 thousand Euros.
