    Must the Court be active in dealing with consumer disputes concerning the protection of the public interest?

  • Sprendimas

    Yes. In the present case, the Court of First Instance had not only the right but also the duty to be proactive, to gather additional evidence independently, to assess the extent of the infringement, and to rule comprehensively on the existence of a breach of the public interest and on the need for restrictions (prohibitions) on the defendant's activities requested by the plaintiff, that is, to conclude whether such restrictions are necessary in a democratic society in order to protect consumer rights and freedoms.
