Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
European Tribune - Germany, Lisbon and Due Process
So formally, the Treaty as such was never challenged.

"Getting it right" may be something of a moving target.  It seems that it was the implementation process which was being challenged.  It would really be helpful if this was resolved prior to the Irish referendum.  We don't need further scare stories on the lines of "even the Germans aren't sure about the Treaty because it doesn't safeguard/undermines the German democratic process".
