European Union v Versalis SpA and another company

European Union – Rules on competition. The European Commission had adopted a decision to the effect that Eni SpA and Versalis SpA had infringed EU competition law, thereby imposing a fine on them. The General Court of the European Union had confirmed the legality of the Commission's decision, save that it had reduced the fine imposed. Both parties appealed, the Commission requesting that the Court of Justice of the European Union (the Court) should set aside that judgment in so far as it had reduced the amount of the fine. Eni and Versalis contended that the Court should set aside the judgment under appeal in so far as it had dismissed their joint action at first instance. The Court dismissed both appeals.
