C 30/49

Action brought on 18 November 2016 — Di Bernardo v Commission

(Case T-811/16)

(2017/C 030/57)

Language of the case: French


Applicant: Danilo Di Bernardo (Brussels, Belgium) (represented by: S. Orlandi and T. Martin, lawyers)

Defendant: European Commission

Form of order sought

The applicant claims that the General Court should:

annul the decision of 10 August 2016 by which the selection board in Open Competition EPSO/AST-SC/03/15 excluded the applicant from that competition;

order the Commission to pay all of the costs in any event.

Pleas in law and main arguments

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


First plea in law, alleging a number of manifest errors of assessment on the part of the selection board when evaluating the applicant’s professional experience.


Second plea in law, raised in the alternative, alleging insufficient reasoning of the contested decision on the basis of the failure to inform the applicant of the selection criteria established by the selection board.
