The European Court of Justice recently considered issues of jurisdiction under Art 7(1) of Reg No 1215/2012 (the Recast Brussels Regulation) for a reimbursement claim brought by one debtor against another regarding a credit agreement. The decision in Kareda v Benko [2017] provides clarification of the court’s jurisdiction under Art 7(1) of the Recast Brussels Regulation.
