SPIEGEL Interview with Ex-German High Court Justice 'It Is a Mistake To Pursue a United States of Europe'

In an interview conducted as he heads into retirement, German Constitutional Court Judge Udo Di Fabio explains why he believes the high court's recent decisions on the European Union will not necessarily hinder further European integration and how he believes debates over possible changes to Germany's constitution to strip power from Karlsruhe are "phoney." 
Interview conducted by Dietmar Hipp and Thomas Darnstädt; translated from the German by Paul Cohen
