Judgment No. 806
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"The procedural flaw the complainant alleges is that the EPO will fully let the appeal proceedings drag on so as to thwart his hopes of promotion. The plea fails. The EPO may not be taken to task for awaiting the Tribunal's ruling on the earlier complaint." In addition the EPO resorted to an extraordinary procedure so that his promotion could be awarded.
