Legal challenge to Brexit

A legal challenge to Brexit, brought by Joanna Cherry and a cross-party group of Scottish politicians, took place at the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg on 27 November 2018. The ECJ is to decide whether Britain’s parliament can unilaterally change its mind on Brexit, and hopes to make a decision on the case before Christmas 2018.[5]
