Judgment of the Court of Justice, Simmenthal IV, Case 92/78 (6 March 1979)

Excerpt from the Simmenthal IV judgment concerning the admissibility of the application for annulment and the plea of illegality. The Court interprets former Article 184 of the EC Treaty (new Article 241) on the plea of illegality in such a way as to allow it to be invoked not only in the case of a Regulation but also with respect to any act of general application which constitutes the legal basis of the decision challenged.
