German Constitutional Court to decide on Lisbon Treaty


UPDATE (30 June 2009): See my summary of the decision on the Lisbon Treaty


Via the European Union Law Blog I just learnt that the German Constitutional Court will decide on the constitutionality of the Lisbon Treaty on Tuesday, 30 June 2009.

Commentators say that they expect the Court not to block the treaty reform, although it might raise some limitations or concerns.

A rejection would probably be the end of Lisbon, making a repeated referendum in Ireland unnecessary.
