Strasbourg, November 20 - The EU took one step
closer to becoming a United States of Europe Tuesday after the
European Parliament voted to enact a rule which calls for all
member states to immediately adopt the verdicts issued in civil
and commercial cases in any one member state.
Prior to the vote on the so-called ''Brussels 1'' rule,
recognition of a verdict in a civil or commercial case in one
country was not automatic in all other member countries.
Instead, under a procedure called ''exequatur'', any person
from a different EU country who wanted the verdict recognized
had to go through a bureaucratic process and spend anywhere
between 2,000 to 12,000 euros.
The new rule was approved by a huge majority of the
European Parliament, with 567 in favor, 28 opposed and 6
abstentions.
''It's a small revolution for justice in Europe, which
brings us closer to the single-market model of the United
States, where every verdict is recognized in all the states of
the union,'' Viviane Reding, vice president of the European
Commission and the rule's author, said Tuesday.
Under the new rules, any verdict achieved in any member
country is immediately effective in all EU member states.
