Pending Case C-438/14 Nabiel Peter Bogendorff von Wolffersdorff – Or is it Peter Mark Emanuel Graf von Wolffersdorff Freiherr von Bogendorff?


The Court of Justice of the European Union should decide in the case Bogendorff von Wolffersdorff that Articles 18 TFEU and 21 TFEU have to be interpreted as meaning that the authorities of a Member State are obliged to recognise the change of name of a national of that State if he is at the same time a national of another Member State and has acquired in that Member State during habitual residence any change of name in accordance with the law of that Member State.
