FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Thyssenkrupp <TKAG.DE> on Thursday said it is filing a complaint with Europe’s general court to dispute an antitrust decision to block a planned joint venture with Tata Steel <TISC.NS>.

The complaint, seen as a symbolic move, comes after the European Commission on June 11 vetoed the plans, which would have created Europe’s second-biggest steelmaker, fearing it would overly hurt competition.
