  • „Fracking“ – Beitrag zur Energieautarkheit oder Umweltzerstörung in großem Stil?

    Nun hat die Fracking-Welle also auch Österreich im Griff. Während bisher die nationale Erdgasförderung kaum von der Öffentlichkeit wahrgenommen wurde und vielmehr die großen internationalen Pipeline-Projekte und die damit verbundene Versorgungssicherheit respektive die Unabhängigkeit von Russland bzw. von den Transit-Staaten im Vordergrund stand, rüsten sich aufgrund großer Funde im Weinviertel nunmehr Energieunternehmen auf der einen und Umweltorganisationen sowie Anrainer auf der anderen Seite zum Schlagabtausch in Österreich. Der Gesetzgeber reagierte darauf mit einer Novellierung des Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfungsgesetzes durch Implementierung eines neuen Tatbestandes.

  • Bulgaria: Decision of the Supreme Court regarding termination of a lease agreement

    In its decision (No. 24/2nd commercial department) of 12 September 2013, the Supreme Cassation Court of Bulgaria comprehensively expressed its opinion on the substantive legal aspects of the economic adverse change clause[1] and ruled on the termination of a lease agreement on this ground. According to the decision, a fundamental change of the circumstances could lead to early termination of an agreement if such change was not caused by any of the parties and neither of them was able to predict it at signing, as well as if further force and effect of the agreement are contrary to the principles of justice and the bona fide rules. The decision is of major importance, since it marks the first time that a long-term lease agreement has been terminated by court ruling due to an economic adverse change. read more...
