Denmark / High Court / B-1753-08 (U.2009.504Ø) Steen and Bolette Gude v Rudersdal Municipiality

Key facts of the case:

The plaintiffs claimed they had the right to ecrect a billboard prohibiting nude bathing on their private beach. They asserted inter alia that it would be in breach of article 1 and article 3 in the Charter if they should tolerate nude bathing.

Paragraphs referring to EU Charter: 

 

The right that according to § 25 in Adgangsbekendtgørelsen, permit Steen and Bolette Rude to give instructions does not include the right to erect a sign with a prohibition of nude bathing. Herinafter and because of what Steen and Bolette Gude stated regarding the principle of equalty and the Charter does not lead to another result, Rudersdal Municipiality is not guilty.

Paragraphs referring to EU Charter (original language): 

 

Den ret, som Steen og Bolette Gude har efter adgangsbekendtgørelsens § 25 til at give anvisninger, giver dem derfor ikke ret til at opsætte et skilt med forbud mod nøgenbadning. Herefter, og da det af Steen og Bolette Gude anførte vedrørende lighedsgrundsætningen og Den Europæiske Unions charter om grundlæggende rettigheder ikke kan føre til et andet resultat, frifindes Rudersdal Kommune.
