    Brexit and Article 50 to be referred to the European Court of Justice

    Lord Carloway, Scotland’s most senior judge, refused the application on Thursday and the case will proceed to the CJEU in the current timescale

    The European Court of Justice will be asked if the UK can unilaterally stop Brexit after the UK Government was refused an appeal by Scotland’s highest court. The Court of Session in Edinburgh ruled in September to refer the question of whether the UK can unilaterally revoke its Article 50 request to leave the European Union to the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) after a case brought by a cross-party group of politicians.

    New battle front for Brexit: revocation of Article 50 addressed to the European Court

    This is the most significant legal development in the Brexit process since the High Court ruled Parliament had to legislate before Government could invoke Article 50

    The European Court will be asked if the UK can unilaterally revoke its Article 50 request to leave the European Union, following a “bombshell” ruling from Scotland’s highest court. In what campaigners described as a “case that could decide the fate of the nation”, the Court of Session in Edinburgh announced it would refer the question on to the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU).
