Popis At the beginning of 2020, the Polish government decided to extend the mining license for the Turów lignite mine for six years. This decision started a series of events from the Czech government suing Poland and the subsequent European Court of Justice ruling to the final settlement between the Republic of Poland and the Czech Republic with payment of 45 000 000 EUR and additional fees of more than 69 000 000 EUR. It is also an excellent example of how two parties might settle a disagreement even though they never agreed-upon facts that support the settlement. There are cases of disagreements in discussions where parties are unable to find common ground. Some of these are called deep disagreements, persistent disagreements, or else (cf. Castro 2021). In this paper, we focus on an actual case where a clear difference of opinions regarding starting points in discussion is present. Although some issues are never directly settled, and even two opposing parties hold contradicting positions, the agreement is reached, and the settlement is signed.
