Advocate General Wahl: the Court of Justice should set aside the judgments of the General Court by which it ordered the EU to pay compensation for material damage to a number of companies as a result of the excessive length of proceedings before that court.

The requirement that the conduct of the institution is the determining factor of the alleged material damage is not satisfied here since that was, in fact, the companies’ decisions to maintain the operation of a bank guarantee.
