EU Case Law

Interesting blog about the leading judgments of the European Court of Justice, the Court of First Instance, the Civil Service Tribunal and the European Court of Human Rights. Its main purpose is to summarize the recent EU case law, in order to help students and EU law researchers in their work. By Lucia Martin, PhD student at the University of Basel, Switzerland.

The case Spain vs. UK from 12-sep-2006 is about the right to vote in European Parliament elections of residents who are not citizens of the European Union. The judge here argues that a clear link between citizenship and the right to vote cannot be deduced from the Treaty provisions relating to the composition of the European Parliament and to EU citizenship.
