Court Clears 9-Year-Old from Repaying Late Mom’s Debt

The Tverskoi Court of Moscow ruled on Thursday to clear a nine-year-old boy from repaying a debt of 561,000 rubles ($19,000) that he inherited from his late mother, RAPSI news agency reported.

Last month the court had received a lawsuit from Alexei Panikorovsky, who sought to collect from Ivan Chaplygin 561,000 rubles owed under a loan made to the defendant’s mother.

The court ruled to “refuse Panikorovsky from collecting money from Chaplygin,” Judge Lyubov Vinogradova said.

Polina Kleimenova, a spokeswoman for the court, earlier said there was nothing illegal in such a lawsuit, although such cases are very rare.
