The case Mangold has ignited a very heated debate all over Europe. In Germany, prominent lawyers have put forward very harsh criticism against the ECJ. In the wake of a case similar to the one in Mangold, decided by the German Federal Labour Court along the lines of Mangold, the defendant company Honeywell lodged a constitutional complaint with the German Constitutional Court arguing that the judgment by the ECJ violated German Constitutional Law. The article presents the long story of the control of EU Law measures by the German Constitutional Court. On the basis of the tools developed by the ECJ itself («sufficiently serious breach of Community law») the German Constitutional Court denies that the judgment delivered by the ECJ in Mangold disregards the principle of ultra vires.
