The reason for this was the Bitcoin Info website, whose author was not allowed to file a blocking case.
The Supreme Court banned the consideration of cases of blocking without the presence of the owners and authors of these sites. According to the definition , courts should involve defendants in meetings to protect “legitimate interests”.
In the definition of the SC it was noted that the authors of the information posted and the owners of the sites should be called to meetings, sending a summons on the time of the court at the place of residence.
In the course of preparation of [such] administrative case for trial, the judge shall determine other persons whose rights and lawful interests may affect the court decision.
The determination was made when considering the complaint of the site owner about Bitcoin Info crypto-currencies Nikolay Tonkoshkurov. In July 2017, the resource was blocked by the decision of the St. Petersburg court, and in April 2018 it was unblocked in the Supreme Court. Even then, the decision stated that the courts violate the law, if they do not involve site owners in the consideration of the case.
Tonkoshkurov was not allowed to attend the meeting about the ban on the site, because he “is not the person involved in the case, was not involved in the case, the issue of his rights and duties was not settled by the court”. The Supreme Court called it “depriving the administrative defendant of the right to appeal a decision that has not yet entered into force.”
