Despite expectations to the contrary, the European Commission decided not to refer the Polish Supreme Court law to the EU’s top court on Wednesday (19 September), following a meeting of EU affairs ministers that heard Poland’s arguments on Tuesday. But it does not necessarily mean a detente is on the cards. Dimitry Kochenov, professor of EU constitutional law at the University of Groningen, told EURACTIV: “In the end, we have only one institution in Europe that is potentially able to change the situation for the better and that is the Court of Justice of the European Union.”
