Access Info Europe v European Commission

European Union – Information. The application by Access Info Europe, pursuant to art 6 of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, for annulment of the European Commission's refusal to grant it access to documents from the Commission's Legal Service which purportedly concerned the legality of the measures adopted by the EU and its member states in implementing the actions set out in the statement of the Heads of State or government of the European Union of 8 March 2016, was allowed in part. The General Court of the European Union held that the Commission should have granted Access Info partial access to certain of the documents at issue pursuant to art 4(6) of that regulation, but dismissed the application as to the remainder.
