Bavarian Lager Company Ltd v Commission of the European Communities (Supported by United Kingdom, Intervener): ECJ 10 Nov 1999

Where an opinion had been drafted in anticipation of being signed in support of a case to be brought by the Commission to enforce EC law, but the matter was settled with the member state involved before the draft report was approved and signed, the Commission was entitled to refuse to disclose the report. It was merely preparatory to the issue of a reasoned opinion.
