Under new rules that came into force in May 2019, an appeal against a General Court decision will not proceed unless the CJEU decides that it should be allowed to do so.
The appellant must demonstrate that the appeal raises an issue that is significant as to the unity, consistency or development of EU law.
In the present case, the CJEU decided for the first time that an appeal in a trademark case was inadmissible.
