Court revokes AMLO’s new Electricity Industry Law suspensions granted to two companies

Mexico City, Mexico — The Second Collegiate Court Specialize in Economic Competition, Broadcasting and Telecommunications unanimously revoked one of the definitive suspensions of the new Electricity Industry Law.

On Thursday, a court specialized in economic competition revoked the definitive suspension granted to two companies that challenged the decree amending the Ley de la Industria Eléctrica Nacional published in the Official Gazette of the Federation on March 9.

The second collegiate court unanimously approved the bill by Magistrate Urbano Martínez Hernández, who annulled the precautionary measure granted by Judge Juan Pablo Gómez Fierro to the companies Hidroeléctrica Cajón de Peña and to Energía Verde Meyer.

The Judicial Council considered that the suspension is not self-applying, which means that its simple entry into force does not cause perjury against market participants. The collegiate body stated that the reform to the Electricity Industry Law has ambiguous effects and does not establish obligations or direct effects.

Therefore, new lawsuits for protection may be filed against specific acts and specific agents. The first specialized court has yet to resolve any of the suspensions under its charge.
