The Spanish District Court referred questions to the CJEU, which the CJEU published on 20 September 2021. The questions pertain to the question of whether the rules for allocating the costs of the proceedings can constitute an infringement of the right of cartel victims to compensation. In addition, the Spanish District Court referred questions about when courts may estimate the amount of the damage, based on EU rules.[1]
