“State liability”: for harm caused to individuals by breaches of Community law for which the state is responsible

This article was published by Monckton Chambers, a “leading set of barristers’ chambers, based in London.”

It advocates the principle of “state liability” which was established by a case in 1991. Where a Member State failed to implement a Directive, the full effectiveness of that measure required a right to compensation.

I imagine that this would apply to Raymond Fox who won a decision by the EU Committee of Petitions and still hasn’t seen any compensation.
