(European Court of Justice; 29 November 2007)
If under Brussels II (Revised), Art 3, a member state had jurisdiction in a matrimonial matter concerning a respondent who was neither an EC national nor resident, another member state could not found jurisdiction on its own national law. Only if no court had jurisdiction under Brussels II (Revised) was jurisdiction to be governed by the laws of the member states.
