LUXEMBOURG/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A system enabling data transfers from the European Union to the United States by thousands of companies is invalid, the highest EU court said on Tuesday in a landmark ruling.

"The Court of Justice declares that the Commission’s U.S. Safe Harbour Decision is invalid," it said in a statement on Tuesday.
