European Union – Insolvency proceedings. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling, deciding, among other things, that arts 3(2) and 27 of Council Regulation (EC) 1346/2000 (on insolvency proceedings) should be interpreted as meaning that the courts of the member state in which secondary insolvency proceedings had been opened had jurisdiction, concurrently with the courts of the member state in which the main proceedings had been opened, to rule on the determination of the debtor's assets falling within the scope of the effects of those secondary proceedings.
