Morningstar, Inc. v European Commission

European Union – Rules on competition. The General Court of the European Union dismissed the action by Morning Star, Inc. for annulment of Commission decision C(2012) final relating to proceedings under art 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and art 54 of the European Economic Area Agreement. The General Court held that the European Commission had not made any manifest errors of commitment or breached any principles of European Union law when it had accepted final commitments made by Thomson Reuters Corporation and companies under its indirect control, including Reuters Ltd (TR). Those commitments had been made following the Commission's preliminary assessment that TR had allegedly abused its dominant position in the worldwide market for consolidated real-time datafeeds.
