The Financial Times also reports the result, adding:
The conditions imposed by the court appeared less onerous than some of the fund’s supporters had feared.
It ruled that the ceiling of €190bn in German financial guarantees imposed when parliament approved the rescue fund could only be increased with the assent of lawmakers. There must be no unlimited liability for Germany, the ESM’s biggest backer, the justices decided.
The judgment was greeted with immediate relief by members of the German parliament. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, leader of the opposition Social Democrats, expressed satisfaction that the Bundestag decisions had been confirmed.
“The ESM can finally start work,” he said.What happens when that money runs out and the German economy suffers some more?
Reuters adds that "the euro rose to a four-month high against the dollar" because of the Court decision. The train wreck continues.
