"A French health insurance provider ruled [that the man's] death was a workplace accident, a decision that TSO [where that man worked] attempted to appeal, stating the employee's death "occurred when he had knowingly interrupted his mission for a reason solely dictated by personal interest,... show more "A French health insurance provider ruled [that the man's] death was a workplace accident, a decision that TSO [where that man worked] attempted to appeal, stating the employee's death "occurred when he had knowingly interrupted his mission for a reason solely dictated by personal interest, independent of his job, after he has an adulterous relationship with a perfect stranger," court records show.

However, the insurance provider argued that sexual intercourse "is a matter of everyday life, like taking a shower or having a meal," and should, therefore, be covered by insurance the same way any other employee behavior exhibited on a work trip would be. It also noted that TSO had not submitted evidence that Xavier "interrupted" his work schedule to have sex with the woman.

The Court of Appeal in Paris ultimately decided to uphold the insurance provider's original decision, noting "it is common ground that sexual intercourse is an act of everyday life." The decision entitled the deceased man's family to undisclosed compensation."
