ORDER OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE GENERAL COURT

18 June 2014 (1)

(Removal from the register)

In Case T-245/14,

Institute for Advanced Sustainibility Studies eV, established in Potsdam (Germany), represented by O. Spieker and M. Alber, lawyers,

applicant,

v

Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs) (OHIM),

defendant,

the other party to the proceedings before the Board of Appeal of OHIM being

EADS Deutschland GmbH, established in Munich (Germany),

ACTION brought against the decision of the Fourth Board of Appeal of OHIM of 14 February 2014 (Case R 1029/2013-4), relating to opposition proceedings between Institute for Advanced Sustainibility Studies eV and EADS Deutschland GmbH.

1        On 17 April 2014, the applicant filed an application at the Registry of the General Court.

2        By letter lodged at the Registry of the General Court on 25 May 2014, the applicant informed the Court in accordance with Article 99 of the Rules of Procedure that it wished to discontinue proceedings. It sought no order as to costs.

3        According to the third subparagraph of Article 87(5) of the Rules of Procedure, if costs are not applied for, the parties shall bear their own costs. In this case, considering that the withdrawal has intervened before notification of the application to the defendant and the other party to the proceedings before the Board of Appeal of OHIM and before they could incur any costs, the applicant should be ordered to bear its own costs.

4        The case should, therefore, be removed from the register and the applicant ordered to bear its own costs.

On those grounds,

THE PRESIDENT OF THE GENERAL COURT

hereby orders:

1.      Case T-245/14 is removed from the register of the General Court.

2.      The applicant shall bear its own costs.

Luxembourg, 18 June 2014.
