Christmas comes early. Council adopts recast of Brussels I Regulation.

Other than for those of the low countries (who will appreciate that this is a Sinterklaas gift and hence impeccably timed), Father  Christmas has brought an early gift on 6 December: Council adopted the recast of the Brussels I Regulation. Council having accepted all of the EP’s amendments (with the Commission not having made any changes since the adoption by Parliament), the text which I reported on earlier, will now be applicable as of early 2015.

I have been taught never to look a gifted horse into its mouth, of course, however as I have flagged on this blog, the recast is not satisfactory in all its parts. Difficulties in practice will remain and future interpretation /adaptation likely. However repetition, too, accords with the festive season.
