Dear European Court of Justice,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
A list of all cases involving South Africans or South African registered companies that appeared before the court during the past year October 2011 to October 2012
Dear Mr Coetzee,
I'm afraid there is no document already in the possession of the ECJ which contains such information, moreover your request relates to the judicial activity of the Court, which is not covered by the access to documents legislation. I would also add that Regulation 1049/2001 does not apply to the Court of Justice.
However, using our online case law database (www.curia.europa.eu/juris) you can search for cases by nationality of the parties. Conducting a search with the option "South Africa" in this field, yields 7 results over the entire history of the Court, and none in the last year.
