The Court of Justice delivered today its judgment in case C‑361/18 (Ágnes Weil v Géza Gulácsi), which is about Brussels I:

“1. Article 54 of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 […] must be interpreted as meaning that a Member State’s court hearing an application for a certificate certifying that a judgment given by the court of origin is enforceable must, in a situation […] where the court which gave the judgment to be enforced did not adjudicate, when giving that judgment, on whether that regulation was applicable, ascertain whether the dispute falls within the scope of that regulation.

2. Article 1(1) and (2)(a) of Regulation No 44/2001 must be interpreted as meaning that an action […] concerning an application for dissolution of the property relationships arising out a de facto (unregistered) partnership, comes within the concept of ‘civil and commercial matters’ within the meaning of Article 1(1) of that regulation and falls, therefore, within the material scope of that regulation”.
