Definition of the Court of Justice of the European Communities

The ECJ (Court of Justice of the European Communities) was a court whose role was to ensure compliance with Community law in the interpretation and application of treaties. This is the old name of the current Court of Justice of the European Union.
She had such power to order fines a State violating European law. This court also controlled the legality of acts issued by the EU institutions.
Ever since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty on 1 December 2009, the ECJ has become the ECJ.
