This chapter analyses direct actions filed before the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) against European Union (EU) institutions. These include actions for damages for loss caused by an act of the Institutions under Articles 268 and 340 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), action for failure of the institutions to act under Article 263 TFEU, and judicial review of EU acts under Article 263 TFEU. This chapter explains that the cases involving Article 263 TFEU and Article 340 TFEU received the most attention for their admissibility and merits. It also includes a consideration of Article 265 and 277 actions.
