Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is no problem with having states' constitutional courts rule on the constitutionality of EU law as transposed into national law.

Certainly. But it is also at least conceivable that a constitutional court (not just in Germany) could find that it is not possible to implement an EU directive in national law in conformity with that country's constitution.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
