The Commission appealed to the CJEU against that decision.
Today, Advocate General Medina has advised the Court of Justice (CJEU) to dismiss the European Commission’s appeal against that General Court judgment. At the Court’s request, the AG focusses upon two of the six grounds of appeal. Those two grounds alleged that the General Court had committed a series of errors and infringed the Commission’s rights of defence in the context of its examination of the as-efficient-competitor (AEC) test regarding two customer accounts.
In particular, AG Medina concludes that:
Daniel and Jack act for Intel on the appeal and are also instructed by Intel in its interest claim, arising from the Commission’s failure to pay default interest following the General Court’s annulment of the fine. See here.
