Toshiba Corporation and others will indeed be a landmark ruling. Not only because of the question of "ne bis in idem", but also regarding relations of the Commission and national competition authorities when it comes to application of domestic anti-trust rules. It is interesting that the referring court in this case did not want to follow a ruling of the Czech Supreme Administrative Court (given as a cassation decision) and therefore referred for a preliminary ruling. It is a nice example of how to "circumvent" binding effects of supreme courts' decisions in Europe.
