Morgan Sports Law acts for equestrian rider, Ms Paige Johnson, in her successful appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (“CAS”) against a one-year ban imposed on her by the Fédération Équestre Internationale (“FEI”). 

Summary

In April 2017, Ms Johnson was suspended from competition after being notified that a Banned Substance had been detected in a sample collected from her horse, Luke Skywalker 46, in February.

An Independent Panel of the FEI imposed a one-year ban on Ms Johnson, following which Ms Johnson instructed Morgan Sports Law to represent her in her appeal to CAS.

Ms Johnson’s suspension was subsequently reduced to three (3) months, backdated to February 2017. Accordingly, Ms Johnson is free to resume her riding career with immediate effect.

Mike Morgan and Donna Bartley of Morgan Sports Law represented Ms Johnson alongside Lisa Lazarus.
