KARLSRUHE, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 12: Peter Gauweiler, Bundestag member of the Bavarian Christian Democrats (CSU) (centre, l) sits next to Herta Daeubler-Gmelin (centre, r), former German Justice Minister who takes a photo with her mobile phone before the Judges of Germany's Constitutional Court arrive to give their verdict on Germany's ratification of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and fiscal compact on September 12, 2012 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The judges ruled that the two measures do not run contrary to Germany's constitution and added regulatory requirement to this decision.
