Key facts of the case:
(Appeals — Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 — Access to documents of the institutions — Protection of personal data — Application relating to a very long document or to a very large number of documents)
Results (sanctions) and key consequences of the case:
191. Since the case is to be referred back to the General Court, the General Court’s decision as to costs should be set aside and the decision on the costs of the present appeal proceedings reserved. (63)
VII – Conclusion
192. I therefore propose that the Court should:
- Set aside point 6 of the operative part of the judgment in Strack v Commission (T‑392/07, EU:T:2013:8) in so far as the General Court rejected the plea in law advanced by Mr Strack that the Commission did not decide on all the decisions refusing confirmatory applications.
- Set aside the decision as to costs in point 7 of the operative part of the abovementioned judgment.
- Dismiss the appeal and the cross-appeal as to the remainder.
- Refer the case back to the General Court of the European Union for a decision as regards the plea in law stated in point 1 of the operative part of the abovementioned judgment.
- Reserve the costs.
