Case T-271/18: Action brought on 3 May 2018 — Mauritsch/INEA



Action brought on 3 May 2018 — Mauritsch/INEA

(Case T-271/18)

2018/C 231/50Language of the case: English


Applicant: Walter Mauritsch (Vienna, Austria) (represented by: S. Rodrigues and A. Champetier, lawyers)

Defendant: Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA)

Form of order sought

The applicant claims that the Court should:

annul, first, the defendant’s decision of 24 January 2018, rejecting the applicant’s complaint of 4 October 2017, and, second, its decision of 2 August 2017, rejecting the applicant’s request for compensation, filed on 10 April 2017;

order the defendant to compensate the applicant for the material prejudice allegedly suffered as a result of the defendant’s fault, amounting to the loss of his entitlement to unemployment benefits for a period of maximum three years, increased by the relevant interest rate; and

order the defendant to reimburse the applicant’s costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicant relies on a plea in law to the effect that the defendant failed to provide him with proper and clear information about his social security rights in the event of his refusal to sign the contract renewal. The applicant argues that he was not in a position to know that his refusal to sign the contract would be treated as resignation. Thus, the applicant was deprived of information and the defendant breached its duty of care and the principle of good administration enshrined in Article 41 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.
