OPPENLÄNDER wins dispute over debt brake
The 2021 state budget has not been challenged by the Constitutional Court. In a dispute between organs, the FDP faction complained about a violation of the debt brake, citing credit authorisations in connection with the Corona pandemic.
OPPENLÄNDER represented the Landtag as budget legislator. The OPPENLÄNDER team, consisting of Prof. Dr. Christofer Lenz, Dr. Henrike Schulte and Julia Felger, succeeded in having the application for a review of norms dismissed as inadmissible by the Constitutional Court after oral proceedings. The decisive factor was that the petitioning parliamentary group was not able to demonstrate a noticeable impairment of the leeway of future parliaments. Here you can find the guiding principles to the judgment of the Constitutional Court of 19 July 2023.
