Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is hardly German exceptionalism to want to enforce its own constitution. However Germany has also ceded sovereignty to the EU in a large number of areas.  When there is a dispute over EU competency or actions, the EJC is the final arbiter. What would concern me is if the German Court arrogates to itself a right to adjudicate on EU actions which effect many member states.  Even the House of Commons doesn't claim jurisdiction over EU affairs.
