AG Wathelet’s Opinion in the Greek lignite case

with one comment

The Opinion of Advocate General Wathelet in the very interesting Greek lignite case came out yesterday. This is the second time in recent weeks that the AG’s Opinion makes an impact in the competition scene with a tightly argued proposal (the previous one was his Opinion in Teléfonica).

You might remember that sometime ago we held our first and so far only ménage à trois debate precisely in relation to the General Court’s Judgment in the Greek lignite case:

For the moment, the AG’s Opinion essentialy sides with what José Luis Buendía wrote in his contribution to this debate a year ago (see here), and criticizes the solution adopted by the General Court.

There are however other very valid contrarian arguments, all brilliantly outlined in the pieces we published from Marixenia Davilla (part I ), and Assimakis Komninos (part III).

  1. I wonder if C-1/12 has not yet given the answer to what the Court of Justice is going to decide in Greek Lignite.
