The Ethiopian Sport Federation in North America (ESFNA) commented on the recent outcome of the appeal in the case against that dates back more than 8 years. The case brought by one of ESFNA’s former Board Member has been pending in the California court system since 2007. In January 2016 the Appellate Court ruled against ESFNA. The judgment requires ESFNA to pay the plaintiff, Asfaw Teferi $100,000. While ESFNA disagrees in the strongest way possible with the outcome and ruling of the lower court, it accepts the judgments.
