  • Questione giuridica
  • Decisione

    In this decision, the Tribunale di Roma has stated the criteria upon which a consumer association has standing to act for an injunction to inhibit the adoption of unfair terms in the consumers’ contracts.
    At this regard, the association should have the scope to protect the consumers’ interests; the decision also confirmed that other issues, such as the nature of the good and/or of the service and the number of the members, are not essential for this purpose.
    Accordingly with the Tribunale di Roma, an “urgent injunction” under the article 1469-sexies, paragraph two, of the Italian Civil Code may be asked by the consumers only to protect the personal rights of the consumers from an irreparable damage.
