Injunctions Directive, Article 3, (b)

The Directive 2009/22/EC should not affect the civil process law of the member states. The Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic stated, that it is obvious, that provisions of the Directive 2009/22/EC are not in conflict with the law of the European Union and it is not necessary to use the preliminary ruling.
The defendant decided earlier in a case of plaintiff. The plaintiff stated, that the Directive 2009/22/EC was not duly implemented into Czech law system and that the current national laws are in conflict with the purpose of the Directive 2009/22/EC. The court should have used the preliminary ruling to ensure right functioning of the law of the European Union.
The Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic confirmed, that the defendant had the possibility to use the preliminary ruling, but it was not necessary, because in this case it is obvious, that there was no conflict with the Law of the European Union. The Directive 2009/22/EC does not affect the civil process law in the Czech law system.
Do the provisions of the Directive 2009/22/EC affect process provisions of national laws?
