...but that gives the lie to the EU saying they have no intention of taking sovereignty from member states. There is an an underlying necessity for them to do so in their law and order issues, not to mention the intent of the ECB To centralise budgetary control.Inasmuch as the EU, qua EU, has no power to bring a case to the ICJ, no, but the individual MS can. See @LeoRoverman ’s post.
The more I think about - and I’ve obviously been a bit slow - this may explain the ‘invention’ of the ECJ and the EU’s insistence on the ECJ being the legal forum.
Obviously open to correction.
