WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A top European Union legal advisor argued that Poland’s way of disciplining judges is contrary to EU law. The Polish government denounced that view as a politically motivated attack on the country’s sovereignty. It’s latest developments in a nearly six-year dispute between the 27-member bloc and Poland’s conservative, populist ruling party. The party has reshaped the country’s justice system in a way that has given the ruling authorities new powers over the courts. The EU legal expert recommended Thursday that the EU’s highest court find a Polish chamber for disciplining judges contrary to EU law. Such legal opinions are not legally binding but are often followed by the court.
