Litigation down in Spain in first year of court fees


According to data from the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) the number of cases in the Spanish courts has gone down by 3.8% compared with last year.


This drop has been attributed to a new law, which came into play in November 2013, which allows the courts to charge fees, payable before a case can be taken to court.

The fees vary between €100 and €1,200 depending on the nature of the case.
