Schrems – judgment imminent

More breaking news on Schrems – the word on the street is that judgment is due to be given by the CJEU on 6 October. This means we will only have to wait another week before discovering whether the Court has followed the Advocate General’s hugely politically controversial opinion.

I should add that on 6 October judgment is also due to be given by the CJEU in East Sussex v Information Commissioner (case on charging for property search information under the EIR). Of course no one could doubt the importance of the East Sussex case (and I’m not just saying that because I appeared for the Commissioner) but I have a sneaking suspicion that Schrems may yet steal our thunder…
