Dispute with the European Commission

The Commission has partially complied with the General Court's decision by paying SYSTRAN the amounts of 5,685,240 Euros on February 9, 2011 and 6,315,760 Euros on March 14, 2011. However, despite the Company's repeated requests, the Commission has not paid the costs.

On March 4, 2011, the European Commission brought an appeal before the Court of Justice against the judgment of the General Court which was delivered on December 16, 2010. On May 13, 2011, SYSTRAN filed its response. The European Commission produced its reply on September 9, 2011. SYSTRAN submitted a rejoinder on October 28, 2011. On November 8, 2011, the Court informed the parties that the written procedure was closed. The Court decided to open the oral procedure. The hearing took place on April 19, 2012, and the Advocate General indicated that he intends to deliver his opinion on September 6, 2012. The Court provided no information on the judgment date.
