EGMR: M. v. Germany (no. 29762/10)

The case concerned the question of just satisfaction with regard to Ms M.’s inability to assert her inheritance rights as a child born outside marriage. In its principal judgment of 9 February 2017 the Court held that there had been a violation of Article 14 (prohibition of discrimination) of the European Convention on Human Rights taken in conjunction with Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life). Today’s judgment concerned the question of just satisfaction.

Just satisfaction: Taking note of the unilateral declaration submitted by the German Government, whereby the Government undertakes to pay Ms M. € 6,100 in respect of pecuniary and non-pecuniary damage and costs and expenses, the Court decided to strike the application out of its list of cases as regards the procedure under Article 41 (just satisfaction) of the Convention.
