Key facts of the case:

The Family Allowances Fund refused to pay an allowance for a child of Algerian nationality to her mother, of Algerian nationality and having the French resident permit, without justification with respect to observation of the special family reunification procedure (condition under articles L.512-2 and D.512-2 of the Code of Social Security). The Court of Appeal confirmed the decision of the Family Allowances Fund.

Legal questions raised: is the difference in treatment in the area of family allocations between children having French citizenship and foreign children residing in France discriminatory? Is the difference in treatment justified?
