"EU Court Overturns Penalty Against Regulator in Antitrust Case"

The Wall Street Journal - July 17, 2009

SULLIVAN & CROMWELL LLP Partner Juan Rodriguez was quoted in The Wall Street Journal about the Court of Justice in Luxembourg's recent decision to overturn the 2007 ruling that required the European Commission to compensate companies that faced losses after a merger or acquisition. "Even if you think the commission has been manifestly erroneous, you are going to have a steep uphill struggle to get substantial compensation," said Mr. Rodriguez.
