First Judgment on a Preliminary Ruling for Bulgaria

The European Court of Justice has reached a judgment in Case C‑545/07, reference for a preliminary ruling under Article 234 EC from the Sofiyski gradski sad (Bulgaria), in the proceedings “Apis-Hristovich EOOD v Lakorda AD” (thanks to Ana Yankova for the quick reaction).

The judgement is historic, for it is the first on a reference for a preliminary ruling from a Bulgarian court. The content of the judgement relates to a highly specialized legal area. The important fact is that the whole road – from the reference of the national jurisdiction to the judgment on the preliminary ruling, has been walked.

Let us hope that more will follow (which hasn’t happened yet).
