BRUSSELS (Reuters) – A second legal case brought by the European Commission against AstraZeneca (NASDAQ:) over its delayed delivery of COVID-19 vaccines got underway in a Brussels court on Tuesday.

Officials familiar with the case said the lawsuit is mostly procedural – pertaining to the merits of the issue – after a first case was launched in April, and would allow the European Union to seek possible financial penalties.

The first legal action was about requesting faster deliveries, whereas the new one will concern the merit of the case.
