On 12 July 2012, the Court of Justice (“CJ”) rendered its eagerly anticipated judgment in Solvay v Honeywell (C-616/10) relevant to the admissibility of cross-border injunctions in IP cases.

We reported earlier here that Advocate General Cruz Villalón (“AG“) proposed the CJ to endorse the on-going Dutch cross-border practice regarding provisional measures and to (re)open the door for cross-border injunctions in main proceedings under limited conditions. The CJ yesterday ruled in line with this proposal.
