Action brought on 29 August 2007 - Dominguez Gonzalez v Commission

(Case F-88/07)

Language of the case: Spanish


Applicant: Juan Luís Domínguez González (Girona, Spain) (represented by: R. Nicolazzi Angelats, lawyer)

Defendant: Commission of the European Communities

Form of order sought

order the defendant to pay the applicant EUR 20 310.68 for damages, not including material and personal damages, and the costs of the application;

order the defendant to pay the costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

This application seeks compensation for damages, which, according to the applicant, arise from the Commission's decision of 20 July 1999 to terminate his contract with the Humanitarian Aid Department of the European Community (ECHO) that he signed on 1 July 1999 after passing the medical examination provided for in the contract.

In support of his application the applicant claims principally that:

-    the contract was terminated on the basis of an examination of his medical problems which was conducted without using up to date information and therefore without taking account of his current state of health;

-    he did not receive any answer to the series of letters sent to the responsible persons at ECHO in order to rectify the earlier error.

-    the Commission breached the terms of the contract stipulating that it could enter into force only when the employee's state of health had been positively evaluated.

-    the Commission infringed his rights of defence.
