ECJ case re judges' retirement age - Advocate General's Opinion in Commission v Poland (C-619/18)
Under the new Polish Law on the Supreme Court that entered into force 3 April 2018, the retirement age for Supreme Court judges has been lowered to 65. The new age limit applies as from the date of entry into force of that law, and includes judges of that court appointed before that date. The Commission considers that by, first, lowering the retirement age and applying that new retirement age to judges appointed to the Supreme Court up until 3 April 2018 and, second, by granting the President of the Republic of Poland the discretion to extend the active judicial service of Supreme Court judges, Poland has infringed EU law.https://curia.europa.eu/jcms/upload/docs/application/pdf/2019-04/cp190048en.pdf
