Germany - A case brought against a German magazine is likely to be won by Michael Schumacher's family.

False claims

Meedia, a media-specific German publication, reports that the family took action against the Bunte weekly following a cover edition claiming the F1 legend "walks again".

In a Hamburg court, lawyers this week asked the judge to assign €100 000 in damages for the false story.

"He cannot walk," Schumacher family lawyer Felix Damm is quoted as saying.

The judge indicated that the awarding of cash damages is likely.

"Realistically, there will be," the judge reportedly said. "A minimum of €40 000."

A verdict is not expected until October.
