EU Data Retention Directive: Fighting Back against mass surveillance
EU Law Analysis: The EU’s Data Retention Directive: Fighting Back against mass surveillance in the EU’s Court of Justice: "Advocate-General’s opinion from last December on the validity of the EU’s data retention Directive (Directive 2006/24; Cases C-291/12 Digital Rights and C-594/12 Seitlinger). These cases, referred from the Irish and Austrian courts, present the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) with its best chance yet to deliver an iconic judgment relating to the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights. The Test-Achats judgment (Case C-236/09) of 2011, concerning the invalidity of EU rules permitting insurance discrimination between men and women, just didn’t amount to such a judgment."
