« State Aids, National Courts and Commission Procedures: Case C-1/90 | Main | Dirty Movies, Solitary Pleasure and Concept of Cinema: Case C-3/09 »



A case can be "completed" or "ended" by something other than a "judgment". For example, if the case is a preliminary reference and relatively easy, the ECJ can answer with an "order". The procedure is a bit simpler and quicker but the practical result is the same.
Cases "completed" probably include actions which are withdrawn and finished with an order stating the case is discontinued (but not sure about that, would need to check).
For statistical purposes and your graph, it is probably best to start with judgments and add manually the orders which are substantive ones (not just procedural things like joinders or interim such as orders in interim measures).
