AG opinion in SELEX v Commission appeal

Advocate General opinion (about 27 pages in French) recommending rejection of an appeal against the CFI ruling that Eurocontrol is not engaged in an economic activity to which competition law applies when it acts as a standardisation authority or finances research and development.

The opinion criticises several aspects of the CFI's reasoning, but the alternative reasons put forward lead, if anything, to a sharper rejection of SELEX's complaint than the CFI ruling that SELEX is appealing against.
