The CEO of Axel Springer Russia Regina von Flemming issued the order on replacement of the main material of number with the translated text. On the official site of the publisher it was reported that suspension of production of the December issue was connected that "in a case with the main history of the magazine... the principles of journalistic ethics were not observed". Axel Springer claimed that on a cover of number the distorted quote from an interview of Baturina who could mislead readers was taken out. A number of employees of the magazine demonstrated that article became the cause of conflict. Kashulinsky also claimed that edition quickly corrected a cover, however the publisher all the same decided to start up under a knife December circulation - because of it it and filed a resignation. Vedomosti wrote that representatives of Inteco - the company belonging to Baturina, - threatened the publisher with claims for protection of a goodwill and Kashulinsky it was known of the prepared claim. He noted that the amount of claims in it was not, but as interim measures representatives of Inteco suggested court to seize all circulation of the magazine and to prohibit the publication of article on the Internet.

At the beginning of February, 2007 Vedomosti, referring to the lawyer Kashulinsky and the editorial offices of the Russian Forbes of Alexander Dobrovinsky, announced legal claims of Inteco company to the magazine and its Chief Editor. Claims were submitted to different courts: to Kashulinsky "About dissemination of the untrue data discrediting a goodwill" - in Chertanovo court of Moscow, and "About a denial of the untrue data discrediting a goodwill and collecting the non-material losses caused as a result of dissemination of these data" to edition of the Russian version of the Forbes magazine - in Moscow arbitration. As the press secretary of Inteco Gennady Terebkov reported Vedomosti, the amount of each of claims was 106,500 rubles (on 1 ruble for each copy of December issue of the Forbes magazine).
On March 21, 2007 the Chertanovo court of Moscow satisfied the claim of Inteco to Kashulinsky, having exacted from the Chief Editor of the Russian version of the Forbes magazine 109,165 rubles (but not in 106,500 rubles as legal costs of the company of Baturina were estimated at 2,665 rubles). The lawyer Dobrovinsky said that he intends to appeal against this solution in Moscow City Court. On May 15, 2007 the Moscow City Court refused to Kashulinsky consideration of its request for recognition of the solution of the decision of Chertanovo court illegal. After announcement of a judicial verdict Dobrovinsky expressed the intention "reach Strasbourg and attract on our party everything Forbsa of the world".
