European Council and others v Czech Republic

European Union – Environment. The Court of Justice of the European Union (the Court) allowed the appeal brought by the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament against a judgment of the General Court of the European Union in which the General Court had granted the application by a Netherlands environment association and another for annulment of a decision of the European Commission refusing to carry out internal review of a decision it had taken pursuant to art 10(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1367/2006. However, the Court decided that, in giving final judgment on the matter, although the appeal was well founded, neither of the pleas of the action lodged by the environment association and the other foundation were well founded and accordingly, their action would be dismissed.
