CoA Luxembourg, June 4, 2024, order on withdrawal of appeal, UPC_CoA_205/2024

3 min Reading time

Key takeaways

R. 265 RoP is primarily drafted with a view to comprehensive withdrawals of whole actions. It does neither distinguish between the first instance and the appeal proceedings nor between procedural appeal and appeals in substance. It does also not exclude the possibility to apply for a withdrawal for any category of action or stage of proceedings.

According to R. 265 RoP, it is in the discretion of the Court to decide on an application to withdraw. It is clearly stipulated that the other party shall be heard and that the other party’s interests shall be considered.

Whether an appeal can be withdrawn in relation to one or two of several respondents would depend on the circumstances of the case. The CoA will consider whether those respondents have already been served the Statement of grounds of appeal, whether they want the appeal to be adjudicated in relation to themselves as respondents and whether they have a legitimate interest in adjudication.
