Poland reversed its Supreme Court law, that lowered the retirement age from 70 to 65, after criticism from the European Court of Justice. The law was implemented in October 2018; forcing around a third of the Supreme Court judges into early retirement.
On 17 December 2018, President Andrzej Duda formalised the action. The judges that were forced into early retirement will therefore be reinstated.
Previous warnings by the EU regarding this rule were neglected by Poland. The EU therefore referred Poland to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
