  • The CJEU’s ruling in the Novartis Farma case: Money, health and
           medicines
    • Authors: Vera Lúcia Raposo
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      In the Novartis Farma SpA case (Case C-29/17), the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) held that the decision of a Member State (Italy) to reimburse a drug used off-label (Avastin), and for that purpose submitted to repacking procedures, is not in violation of European law, even if there is a duly approved therapeutic alternative (Lucentis) on the market and the procedure is solely to reduce health care expenditures.This was not the CJEU’s first ruling on off-label drug use. The novelty of the Novartis Farma SpA case is the economic element attached to the assessment of off-label prescriptions, even though the Court failed to consider this essential feature of the case.This paper analyses the Court’s ruling in light of two main principles of European pharmaceutical law: the imposition of marketing authorization for drugs used in the European market; and the predominance of public health concerns over economic considerations. The paper concludes that the Court failed to identify a major issue in the Italian policy – the reimbursement of off-label drug used when there is a properly approved therapeutic alternative on the market – at the risk of undermining the entire European pharmaceutical framework and endangering public health.

  • Insolvency judges meet strategic behaviour: A comparative empirical study
    • Authors: Gijs van Dijck, Ruben Hollemans, Monika Maśnicka, Catarina Frade, Lorenzo Benedetti, Lucilla Galanti, Paula Fernando, Joanna Kruczalak – Jankowska, Niccolo Abriani, Ruben Jesus, Anna Machnikowska, Ilaria Pagni
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      This article reports the results of a comparative empirical legal study that analyzed (1) strategic behaviour by actors in insolvencies that is salient to insolvency judges and (2) how insolvency judges respond to such behaviour. After examining four different European countries, namely Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Portugal, the study reveals how differences regarding case allocation, judge – insolvency practitioner (IP) interaction, and remuneration and case financing can result in strategic behaviour on both the side of the judges and the IPs. From this, it follows that improving the efficiency and effectiveness is not merely a matter of implementing legislation and case law, but that it also requires a look into the dynamics between insolvency judges, IPs, and other actors in the insolvency process.

  • Cross-border litigation: Evaluating the Brexit impact – a
           socio-legal model for data analysis
    • Authors: Mihail Danov
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      The UK decision to leave the European Union could directly impact on the application of the EU private international law (‘PIL’) instruments in the UK. Any fresh legal uncertainty driven by such a change in the legal landscape in relation to PIL could have significant impact on private parties’ access to remedies. This article proposes a socio-legal model for measuring the Brexit impact on litigants’ access to legal remedies. In order to systematically identify the important issues (which need to be considered by policy-makers as priority in this context), the proposed theoretical model is developed around the litigants’ strategies. The advanced model has two major features. First, it is set to analyse the triangular relationship between: 1) jurisdiction (procedural rules); 2) choice of law (applicable substantive laws); 3) outcome of a cross-border case. Secondly, the relevant claimants’ and defendants’ strategies in cross-border cases are thoroughly considered by taking a game theoretic perspective.

  • Delays, cancellations and compensation: why are air passengers still
           finding it difficult to enforce their EU rights under Regulation
           261/2004'
    • Authors: Sara Drake
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this article is to identify why air passengers travelling in the European Union, endowed with the highest standard of consumer protection in the world under EU law, are still being denied their rights and finding it difficult to seek effective legal redress. This article argues that the principal cause of airlines’ non-compliance is the poor regulatory design of Regulation 261/2004, which has been compounded by inadequate application by the Member States and regulatory resistance by the airlines. This contribution will then demonstrate how the European Commission (‘Commission’) has responded through the adoption of both deterrence and compliance-based enforcement strategies, and maps out the mechanisms, tools and actors harnessed by the Commission to create a complex hybrid, multi-layered system of enforcement. The article reveals that enforcement gaps persist and argues that the effectiveness of the regime is unlikely to improve without legislative reform.

  • 20 Years anniversary of the Tampere programme: Securitization,
           intergovernmentalism and informalization
    • Authors: Sergio Carrera
      First page: 3
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      The end of 2019 coincided with two anniversaries with profound implications for EU Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) cooperation. First, it has been 20 years since the adoption of the Tampere Programme under the Finnish Presidency of the EU (October 1999). Following the entry into force of the Amsterdam Treaty, the European Council provided for the first time a multi-annual EU policy agenda for the progressive creation of an Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ). Second, it has been 10 years since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty (December 2009), and the EU Charter of Fundamental rights becoming legally binding. In light of this background, this Editorial critically examines some of the latest key developments in the EU AFSJ law and policy.

  • Headscarves return to the CJEU: Unfinished business
    • Authors: Erica Howard
      First page: 10
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      In 2017, the CJEU brought out its judgments in two cases concerning bans on the wearing of Islamic headscarves at work as possible discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief under Directive 2000/78/EC. These judgments led to heavy criticism, mainly because the CJEU did not do a rigorous proportionality test and left a number of questions open. Two recent preliminary references from courts in Germany present the CJEU with an opportunity to expand on the earlier judgments and to answer the questions they left open. It is submitted that the CJEU should deal with this unfinished business in a way which respects Europe’s religious diversity and ensures that the ground of religion and belief does not become the poor relation of EU anti-discrimination law.

  • Transatlantic enforcement of Dutch collective settlement judgments: the
           case of Canada
    • Authors: Bastiaan Van Zelst, Mathew P. Good
      First page: 29
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      This article aims to discuss the enforcement of foreign collective action and settlement judgments in Canada. More specifically, it investigates the enforceability of the decision by the Amsterdam Court of Appeal declaring binding a class settlement in the Ageas case.The development of the Netherlands into a prime venue for (cross-border) collective settlements – including with respect to claimants and defendants residing across the Atlantic – renders a discussion of the enforceability of court decisions pertaining to the collective settlement of disputes of interest from a Dutch, EU and extra-EU perspective.

  • Does Not It Matter' Widening of Derogation for Services of General
           Interests
    • Authors: Ildikó Bartha, Tamás M. Horváth
      First page: 55
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      The scope of derogation possibilities for Services of General Interests in the EU internal market has been widened by legislators for more than fifteen years. The process is also supported by the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. State aid and other influential instruments are allowed to derogate from internal market and competition rules while their roles are heavily discussed in the circumstances of free market economy. Are these solutions leading to new regimes in European integration' This study aims at reconstructing the sense of this process in its details. This analytical study is based on comparative legal investigations applying qualitative and quantitative methods.

  • The Unified Patent Court and the frustrated promise of IP protection:
           Investors’ claims in (post-)Brexit Britain
    • Authors: Riccardo Vecellio Segate
      First page: 75
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      Tensions between the EU’s legal order and the international investment law regime are not exclusive to the Brexit era, but they certainly gained momentum in the aftermath of this referendum. By incautiously declaring that the UK will remain a party to the Unified Patent System regardless of Brexit, the British government arguably shaped (il)legitimate expectations on the part of investors who aimed at exploiting their intellectual property rights in the UK while benefitting from the judicial protection of the forthcoming Unified Patent Court as much as of the European institutions (and market) as a whole. Indeed, not only the System itself will undergo a process of major rebalancing after London’s departure from the EU, but more importantly, the UK will most probably be unable to retain its membership in the System after the actual delivery of Brexit. These complications trigger a wide spectrum of fundamental dilemmas investing the definition and scope of concepts such as unilateral declaration, indirect expropriation, reasonable expectation, estoppel, and public policy exception, under both EU law and international investment law. It is therefore essential to explore these intersections as to anticipate possible scenarios in the event of both domestic court and international arbitral claims lodged by patent investors pre- and post-Brexit, having due regard for competition concerns on the side of the EU, yet referring to recent Canadian case law which opened the gate to investor-State claims in the field of intellectual property.

  • From Portugal to Poland: The Court of Justice of the European Union as
           watchdog of judicial independence
    • Authors: Aida Torres Pérez
      First page: 105
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      In Associação Sindical dos Juízes Portugueses, the CJEU seized the occasion to uphold the principle of judicial independence as a primary obligation for the Member States under the second subparagraph of Article 19(1) TEU. This newly crafted interpretation of Article 19(1) has crystallized in Commission v. Poland, in which the CJEU declared that the reform of the Polish law on the Supreme Court lowering the retirement age of judges breached the obligation to respect judicial independence. The goal of this piece is to assess the bold interpretation given to the second subparagraph of Article 19(1) as a building block of the EU’s constitutional order. First, the expansion of the substantive content of Article 19(1) TEU will be analysed. How did the CJEU justify the shift from an obligation to establish a system of remedies ensuring effective judicial review to an obligation of respect for judicial independence' Second, the scope of this obligation and its potential reach will be critically examined. I will argue that Article 19(1) TEU may actually trigger the application of the Charter. Eventually, Article 19(1) TEU has the potential to become an open door for enforcing the Charter against the States regardless of its limited scope of application.

           justifying an ex post regularization of projects without an EIA: Case
           C-411/17 Inter-Environnement Wallonie and Bond Beter Leefmilieu
           Vlaanderen, EU:C:2019:622
    • Authors: Theodoros G Iliopoulos, Daan Bijnens
      First page: 120
      Abstract: Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Ahead of Print.
      In July 2019, the CJEU delivered its judgment on the case C-411/17 Inter-Environnement Wallonie and Bond Beter Leefmilieu Vlaanderen. The case relates to the protracted debate on the production and use of nuclear energy in Belgium, which at present culminated with the legislative extension of the operation of two nuclear power stations. The CJEU ruled that the extension should have only been granted after an assessment on the stations’ impact on the environment had been carried out and, thus, the national measures were in breach of EU law. However, it is here argued that the judgment does not settle the dispute: it only initiates its second phase. Accordingly, this contribution focuses on the judgment’s expected implications for EU law and for the national constitutional order.
