Dear Sir,


We have received your request regarding access to certain documents
related to Palantir Technologies.


It does not appear that the Court of Justice of the European Union would,
as a matter of principle, systematically receive and/or hold such


In any event, as far as access to documents held by the Court is
concerned, we would like to draw your attention, first, to the fact that
access to documents held by the Court of Justice in the exercise of its
administrative functions is subject to the Decision of 11 October 2016 of
the Court, which you can find together with all the relevant information
on the internet ([1] Note
in this regard, that the Court of Justice does not fall under the
institutions covered by Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 when it exercises
judicial functions.


Second, as regards access to documents held by the Cour in the exercise of
its judicial function, we need to point out that it is the practice of the
Court to treat procedural documents as confidential and not to allow
access to pending or closed cases to persons who are not a party to the


Although the Statute of the Court of Justice provides that the hearings
are to be public, it restricts those entitled to receive communication of
procedural documents to the parties and to the institutions whose
decisions are in dispute. Similarly, the Rules of Procedure provide for
procedural documents to be served only on the parties to the proceedings.
Therefore, neither the Statute of the Court of Justice nor the Rules of
Procedure provide for any third-party right of access to documents
submitted to the Court in court proceedings.


Such documents may only become accessible after 30 years, provided the
conditions laid down in the rules on the Historical Archives of the
European Union are met, and without prejudice to an individual assessment
of each request. For further information, please refer to our website:


Under these circumstances, the Registrar regrets to inform you that the
Court is unable to accede to your request.
