    Characteristics of Precedent: The Case Law of the European Court of Justice in Three Dimensions2015In: German Law Journal, ISSN 2071-8322, E-ISSN 2071-8322, Vol. 16, no 5, p. 1073-1098Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) is one of the most important sources of European Union law. However, case law’s role in EU law is not uniform. By empirically studying how the Court uses its own case law as a source of law, we explore the correlation between, on the one hand, the characteristics of a CJEU case— type of action, actors involved, and area of law—and, on the other hand, the judgment’s “embeddedness” in previous case law and value as a precedent in subsequent cases. Using this approach, we test, confirm, and debunk existing scholarship concerning the role of CJEU case law as a source of EU law. We offer the following conclusions: that CJEU case law cannot be treated as a single entity; that only a limited number of factors reliably affect a judgment’s persuasive or precedential power; that the Court’s use of its own case law as a source of law is particularly limited in successful infringement proceedings; that case law is particularly important in preliminary references—especially those concerning fundamental freedoms and competition law; and that initiating Member State and the number of observations affects the behavior of the Court.

    Peek-A-Boo, It’s a Case Law System!: Comparing the European Court of Justice and the United States Supreme Court from a Network Perspective2017In: German Law Journal, ISSN 2071-8322, E-ISSN 2071-8322, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 647-686Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) have had an immense impact on development of European Union law, and this has raised a critical discussion about how the CJEU establishes and uses case law. Through a comparison with the United States Supreme Court (USSC) and network analysis, this article argues that much of the criticism is based on false expectations as to the nature of the CJEU. We argue that the Court of Justice must be understood as a precedent-driven constitutional court and that, if we take that as our starting point, its approach to case law is quite reasonable.
