ABSTRACT
The article discusses the ruling by the European Court of Justice on a competition case. The ruling relates to the insurance market, and was brought by Vincenzo Manfredi and others against Lloyd Adriatico Assicurazioni. The Manfredi case was brought against a number of Italian insurers which shared market information. They used the information to keep premiums high and the Italian competition authority decided this was unlawful.
