In January 2012, in the case of Digital Rights Ireland Ltd. v The Minister for Communications & Ors., the High court referred certain questions to the CJEU (ECJ) under Article 267 TEU.
In the events that happened the ECJ struck down or found invalid Directive 2006/24/EC in the course of the hearing of the referred questions.
The High court is now hearing the parties (Digital Rights Ireland Ltd. and the Minister for Communications & Ors.) in the resumed proceedings, interrupted by the reference made in 2012.
Interested parties may attend. The hearing is taking place in Court No. 14 on the 2nd floor of the Four Courts in Dublin. It may conclude today.
