Judgment of the Court of Justice, Internationale Handelsgesellschaft, Case 11/70 (17 December 1970)

In this judgment, the Court supplements the Stauder precedent by stating that respect for fundamental rights forms an integral part of the general principles of law protected by the Court of Justice and that the protection of such rights, whilst inspired by the constitutional traditions common to the Member States, must be ensured within the framework of the structure and objectives of the Community.
