C 159/14


Request for a preliminary ruling from the Juzgado de Primera Instancia No 5 de Cartagena (Spain) lodged on 14 March 2014 — Aktiv Kapital Portfolio Investments v Ángel Luis Egea Torregrosa

(Case C-122/14)

2014/C 159/19

Language of the case: Spanish

Referring court

Juzgado de Primera Instancia No 5 de Cartagena

Parties to the main proceedings

Applicant: Aktiv Kapital Portfolio Investments

Defendant: Ángel Luis Egea Torregrosa

Question referred

Must Directive 93/13 (1) be interpreted as precluding a provision of national law like the Spanish legislation that does not allow the court to review of its own motion in limine litis, in the subsequent enforcement procedure, the judicial enforceable instrument — an order made by the court bringing the order-for-payment proceedings to an end in the absence of any objections — in order to ascertain whether there are unfair terms in the contract that served as a basis for the issue of that decree whose enforcement is sought, because national law considers the matter to be res judicata — Articles 551 and 552 of the Ley de Enjuiciamiento Civil [Code of Civil Procedure] in conjunction with Article 816(2) thereof?


(1)  Council Directive 93/13/EEC of 5 April 1993 on unfair terms in consumer contracts OJ 1993 L 95, p. 29.
