Dansk Automat Brancheforening v European Commission

European Union – Action for annulment. The European Commission approved a measure which Denmark was planning to implement in the form of duties for online gaming in the Danish law on gaming duties. The Commission found that the measure was compatible with the internal market, within the meaning of art 107(3)(c) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. The applicant, an association representing some 86% of the operators of games played on slot machines in Denmark, brought an action for the annulment of the decision. The Court of Justice of the European Union dismissed the action as inadmissible on the ground that the applicant lacked the necessary legal interest in bringing proceedings.
