Judgment No. 1510
THE COMPLAINTS ARE DISMISSED.
"An international civil servant may not ordinarily impugn a general rule that does not affect himself. Yet he may challenge any individual decision that does him injury; in so doing he may support his claims with any plea he likes; and he may thus plead breach of some general principle or of a written rule or clause of his contract that constitutes a term of appointment." The complainants are "just as free to plead flaws in the material rules as any mistakes of law or fact in assessing the peculiarities of their own position."
