I would infer no difference.Is there any difference in meaning between the expressions "to fall on someone" and "to fall to someone"? They seem to have the same meaning, namely, that something is someone's responsibility. There may be a difference in usage, though.
"It falls to the Court to verify whether the Member State concerned has adopted appropriate measures for ensuring the free movement of goods."
Would it be wrong to replace "falls to" with "falls on"? I don't think so. What do you think?
