European Union – Civil and Commercial matters. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling, deciding, among other things that, art 1 of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 should be interpreted as meaning that a complaint lodged with an investigating magistrate seeking to join a civil action to proceedings fell within the scope of that regulation in so far as its object was to obtain monetary compensation for harm allegedly suffered by the complainant.
