Hi All.
Wondering if anyone has seen the following errors in iCal (Calendar) on OSX 10.9.1 Mavericks.

Error: Access to "appt name" in "Calendar name" in account "iCloud" is not permitted.
The Server Responded 403 to operation CalDAVMoveEntityQueable

Try Again
Revert to Server

The issue appears only on the Mac PC.
It seems to come up when an .ics calendar item is updated or modified by the sender.

I tried turning off the iCloud Calendar and Turning it back ON to re-sync but this did not resolve the issue.
Looking for suggestions.

There is a very long (5 page) discussion of the problem here with all sorts of different suggested solutions, but there doesn't seem to be a consensus. All I can suggest is to go through the thread trying each in turn:

If one of them works for you, please let us know.

Contacted Apple to confirm this is a bug and deleting the original appointments was the only solution

I opened a case with Apple - No solution to this error other than deleted the appointments which cause this problem.
