The appeals before the Court of Justice of the European Union (TJUE) can vary, which is why our team of lawyers with a vast experience in European Union law are below highlighting the different actions to be taken when defending your interests:
The Preliminary Ruling
Whatever the nature or origin of the case, appeals or proceedings before the Court of Justice of the European Union are public.
However, in order to ensure the effective and homogeneous application of European Union law and to avoid disparate interpretations, national judges have access to make preliminary rulings in order to verify the conformity of national rules with European law.
The body which refers the matter to the Court of Justice is linked by the interpretation given in order to resolve the dispute, so that the judgment of the Court of Justice is binding with the other bodies in knowledge of the same issue.
This allows the Court of Justice to review whether Member States are meeting their obligations under Union law.
Action due to Annulment
With this appeal, the applicant seeks the annulment of an act of an institution, body, office or agency of the Union (in particular, regulations, directives, etc.).
The Action for Failure to Act
This enables control of the legality of the inactivity of an institution, body, office or agency of the Union. However, such an action cannot be brought in before the institution has been called upon to act.
The procedure before the European Court of Justice is free of charge, but the parties must be represented by a lawyer authorised to practise before a court of a Member State.
