Judgment of the Court of Justice, Rutili, Case 36/75 (28 October 1975)

In the Rutili judgment, the Court of Justice provides a strict interpretation of the public policy reservation which may possibly restrict the free movement of workers in the Member States. As an exception to a fundamental principle of Community law, its application must comply with all Community rules. Accordingly, any measures which may be taken by a Member State must be based exclusively on the personal conduct of the individual posing a genuine and sufficiently serious threat, and must apply indiscriminately to nationals of the Member State and to other Community nationals.
