The Court of Justice of the European Union's press release on 3 April 2020 stated how the institution will adapt in light of the disruption caused by coronavirus. Since 16 March 2020, it has implemented a widespread system of remote working. Any hearings scheduled from the period between 16 March and, 30 April and 15 May, respectively, will be postponed due to the restrictions on movement affecting most of the Member States. Nonetheless, the processing of cases is still on-going.
