Action brought on 18 April 2018 — Bruno v Commission

(Case T-241/18)

2018/C 231/37Language of the case: French


Applicant: Luigi Bruno (Woluwé-Saint-Pierre, Belgium) (represented by: N. de Montigny, lawyer)

Defendant: European Commission

Form of order sought

Declare and rule that

the Authority Empowered to Conclude Contracts (AECC) of 4 July 2017 is annulled;

in so far as necessary, the express decision rejecting the claim dated 18 January 2018 is annulled;

the defendant shall pay the costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicant relies on two pleas in law.


First plea in law, alleging an error of law committed by the European Commission in the application of Article 11(1) and 12(1) of Annex VIII to the Staff Regulations in so far as, by its decision, the Commission rejected the applicant’s application for grant of the leaving allowance provided for in Article 12(2) of that annex by, on the contrary, restricting him to application of article 11(1) of Annex VIII to the Staff Regulations, which, however, does not apply to his situation.


Second plea in law, raising a plea of illegality, in so far as the abovementioned provisions of the Staff Regulations infringe the principle of equal treatment and of non-discrimination because of a legislative lacuna.
