  • Fatti
    The plaintiff as well as other 249 subjects brought an action before the court requesting the invalidity declaration of several decisions issued by defendant (among which decisions of 21 November 2015 n. 554/2015, n. 553/2015, n. 555/2015 and n. 556/2015) that disposed the resolution of Banca Popolare dell'Etruria e del Lazio, Banca delle Marche S.p.a., Cassa di Risparmio di Ferrara S.p.a. and Cassa di Risparmio della Provincia di Chieti S.p.a. The 249 plaintiffs, owners of said banks' shares, requested the decisions' annulment based on abuse of power of defendant, and a compensation for damages suffered as a consequence of the resolution proceedings that depreciated thier shares value. The defendant claimed the illegality of Codacons standing to bring the action at issue in court.
  • Questione giuridica
    Can the action for annulment be comprised in the meaning of art. 140 of the Consumer Code, that lists the actions that can be undertaken by the associations referred to in art. 137 for the protection of consumers' and users' interest?
  • Decisione

    The list of actions referred to in art. 140 of the Consumer Code is rigidly fixed and exhaustive, and it is not possible to find in the wording of said article an interpretation that may allow for the associations referred to in art. 137 to bring into court an action of annulment even if it is for the protection of consumers' and users' interests.
