Sundelind Lopez v Lopez Lizazo (Case C-68/07)

“Arts 6 and 7 of Regulation No 2201/2003 meant that where, in divorce proceedings, a respondent was not habitually resident in and not a national of a member state, the courts of a member state could not base their jurisdiction to hear the petition on their national law, if the courts of another member state had jurisdiction under art 3 of the Regulation.
The Third Chamber of the Court of Justice of the European Communities so ruled on a reference for a preliminary ruling by the Högsta domstolen, Sweden.”
