On 20 June 2013 the European Court of Justice (ECJ) dismissed an appeal from tennis pro Guillermo Cañas in an anti-doping case (C-269/12 P). Mr Cañas had previously lodged a complaint before the Commission on grounds of alleged violations of EU competition law but his complaint had been dismissed. Mr Cañas had then challenged the Commission's rejection before the General Court (T-508/09) who found no need to adjudicate. The appeal to have this decision overruled was rejected by the Court.
