Deutsche Lufthansa AG and other companies v European Commission

European Commission – Rules on competition. The General Court of the European Union allowed the application by Deutsche Lufthansa AG (Lufthansa) and its subsidiaries for annulment of Commission Decision C(2010) 7694 final (the contested decision) in which the European Commission had found that those companies and other carriers had participated in a single and continuous infringement of EU competition law by co-ordinating its behaviour as regards the pricing of freight services. The General Court decided that the contested decision was vitiated by a defective statement of reasons which justified its annulment.
