EU on brink as looming court showdowns could see bloc collapse THIS WEEK

A trio of rulings in Warsaw and Luxembourg could have far-reaching consequences for the future of the bloc. The rulings could bring into question Poland’s EU membership as the battle between its eurosceptic government and Brussels set to reach a climax. Today, Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal, its top court, will consider whether provisions in EU law are compatible with the country’s constitution.

Tomorrow the same court will consider a separate case on whether the European Court of Justice can force Warsaw to suspend its judicial reforms.

And on Thursday, the ECJ, the EU’s top court, will rule on whether a new disciplinary regime for judges set up by the Polish government is in breach of the country’s EU treaty obligations.

The mechanism allows judges to be punished by Warsaw for a number of reasons, including the content of their rulings.
