Damages for Delay: The EU Held Liable for Harm Caused by ‘Unjustified Inactivity’ in General Court Proceedings

Luuk Bressers has written Damages for Delay: The EU Held Liable for Harm Caused by ‘Unjustified Inactivity’ in General Court Proceedings.

ABSTRACT: In a series of recent judgements the General Court ruled on the non-contractual liability of the Court of Justice of the European Union (‘CJEU’). In three of those cases the General Court held the CJEU liable for damages caused by delayed proceedings and awarded the applicants compensation for material and immaterial damages. While the non-contractual liability of the institutions of the European Union is a well-established principle of EU law, this was the first time this principle was applied to the CJEU itself.
