MOSCOW, September 22 - RAPSI, Sergei Feklyunin. The commercial court scheduled October 25 for its preliminary hearing of a $12 million lawsuit filed by an ore mining and processing company against a major insurer, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).

Lebedinsky Ore Mining and Processing Enterprise, which filed the lawsuit against AlfaStrakhovanie on September 13, is a largest iron ore producer and processor in Russia.
AlfaStrakhovanie is part of Alfa Group and offers over 100 types of insurance services, including life and accident insurance. It has more than 390 offices all over Russia.

According to the plaintiff the statement of claim is just a technical step as the company hopes to settle the dispute soon and receive due compensation. The lawsuit stems from a failure of insured equipment that caused economic losses due to subsequent idle time and repairs.
