Le recours en cassation devant le Conseil d'Etat

Abstract : By the end of the 80's, they was a large backlog of cases for the Conseil d'Etat, so legislation was passed to avoid substantial delays in proceedings.The Act of 31 December 1987, added to the court vested with administrative jurisdiction the administrative court of appeal, to which the bulk of the appellate jurisdiction was transferred. For these courts and various specialised courts, such as the Court of Audit, an appeal on points of law lies to the Conseil d'Etat as supreme administrative court.The Conseil d'Etat will not overrule the assessment the lower court made of the facts.Thus determining what can be qualified as an error of law, is the criterion to ascertain if the applicant's complaint is justified. However, case-law on that topic is ambiguous and raises much controversy.The Conseil d'Etat might dismiss the argument submitted by an applicant. It may also quash the decision of the lower court and, subsequently, rule on the merits of a case or remit the case to a lower court.
