In April 2018, the General Court issued the first ever judgment in EU law dealing with the legal requirements for applying injunctions in State aid cases, more specifically suspension injunctions. The Commission rarely uses these measures; therefore it is beneficial to know how the EU judicature sees the legal boundaries of these legal concepts and where the limits for the Commission are to use them properly.
