"In an interim decision, the Federal Administrative Court rejects Google's request to grant suspensive effect to itsappeal. The Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics may therefore conclude the public cloud contracts with the selected tenderers," the court said in a statement on Wednesday.

The decision may be appealed to the Swiss supreme court.
