The case CAS 2015/A/4062 Silvio Danailov & Vladimir Sakotic & Sava Stoisavlevic v. World Chess Federation (FIDE) is now on the schedule to be heard on November 26.

The case Bruyneel vs USADA (CAS 2013/A/3285) is an example where CAS jurisdiction to hear a procedural appeal was found lacking ("the USADA Protocol does not authorize a CAS appeal of preliminary procedural measures", here Bruyneel questioning whether the AAA arbitration panel had jurisdiction), though the discussion makes it clear that such a question depends on what the relevant dispute resolution conditions state. For FIDE, it says that "any decision" may be appealed to the CAS, though whether the finding of receivability is a "decision" in the FIDE parlance is not apparent.

The recent Annex 52 from the Ethics Commission notes two pending cases, 13/2014 European Chess Federation [sic] against Danailov/Sakotic/Stoisavljenic, and Montenegro Chess Fedration against Sakotic/Stoisavljenic, both being appealed to the CAS after being held admissible.

There is also case 4/2015, Georgiev/Stoichkov/Stoynev against Bulgarian Chess Federation (failure of fundamental justice in internal discipline), which was held admissible, and BCF vs Azmaiparashvili/Tsorbatzoglou regarding alleged interference into BCF affairs, which is on hold until the CAS appeal reaches its outcome.

The CAS ruled that the FIDE Ethics Commission is competent to hear the complaint, and assessed internal costs to the Appellants.

FIDE has posted a scan of some parts of the CAS decision, essentially corroborating my expectation, namely that the FIDE Ethics Commission does indeed have jurisdiction over the ECU [and thereby its president] in terms of ethical matters (which Danailov called a "matter of principle" in making the appeal), and that the matters to be judged are indeed prima facie violations.
