On 13 December 2012, the Court of Justice of the EU rendered its judgment in the case France v Parliament (C-237/11 and C-238/11) on law governing the institutions.
On 3 March 2011, the Conference of Presidents adopted two draft calendars of part-sessions, one for 2012 and one for 2013. In relation to October 2012, the draft provided for two plenary part-sessions to be held, the first from 1 to 4 October, and the second from 22 to 25 October. In respect of October 2013, the draft also provided for two plenary part-sessions to be held, the first from 30 September to 3 October, and the second from 21 to 24 October.
By its applications in cases C-237/11 and C-238/11, the French Republic seeks the annulment of the votes of the European Parliament of 9 March 2011 concerning the Parliament’s calendar of part-sessions for 2012 and for 2013, respectively (‘the contested votes’).
