The Court of Justice delivered today its judgment in case C‑627/17 (ZSE Energia, a.s. v RG):
“1. Article 3(1) of [the ESCP] Regulation […] must be interpreted as meaning that the concept of ‘parties’ covers solely the applicant and the defendant in the main proceedings.
2. Article 2(1) and Article 3(1) of [the ESCP] must be interpreted as meaning that a dispute […] in which the applicant and the defendant have their domicile or their habitual residence in the same Member State as the court or tribunal seised, does not come within the scope of that regulation”.
