German Supreme Court To Make A Decision That Will Make The Obamacare Drama Look Like Child's Pla

•, Simone Foxman

In the wake of the European summit last Friday, the German legislature finally approved the European Stability Mechanism—a permanent European bailout fund.

However, the Constitutional Court (in German, the Bundesverfassungsgericht) could now issue an injunction against the ESM if it finds that the mechanism impinges upon the sovereignty of the German state.

The plaintiffs, who oppose Germany transferring more power to European institutions, are trying to obtain a temporary injunction against the two laws to stop them entering into force until the court has addressed the main complaints against the measures at a later date and ruled whether the laws in question are constitutional. It is highly unusual for the court to hold a hearing on requests for a temporary injunction. The fact that it is doing so is regarded as a sign of the importance of the issue.
