EU exec asks EU top court to suspend work of Poland's supreme court disciplinary chamber

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission decided on Tuesday to ask the EU’s top court to suspend the functioning of the disciplinary chamber of Poland’s Supreme Court.

The European Union’s executive arm said its move came after a preliminary ruling of the EU’s Court of Justice on Nov. 19, 2019, which asked the Polish Supreme Court to decide if the new Disciplinary Chamber, appointed by the ruling PiS party, was independent.
