Judgment No. 1543
The complaint is dismissed.
"The Administrative Council exercised its discretion under Article 19(2) [of the EPO's Protocol on Privileges and Immunities] in declining to waive the President's immunity from jurisdiction. Such exercise of discretion is a matter outside the Tribunal's competence, affecting as it does relations between the defendant organisation and a member State. The complaint is therefore 'clearly irreceivable' and must be summarily dismissed in accordance with Article 7 of the Tribunal's Rules."
