Poland faces yet another challenge at the European Union’s top court over its controversial disciplinary regime for judges and a law aimed at punishing those who are too critical.

The European Commission on Wednesday said it will also ask the EU Court of Justice to suspend the Polish measures pending a final ruling, “to prevent the aggravation of serious and irreparable harm inflicted to judicial independence and the EU legal order.”
