Cherry Case

Working with a cross party group of 75 MPs and Lords, led by Joanna Cherry QC MP, we challenged the unlawful suspension of Parliament, so that our elected MPs could do their job holding the Government to account.

Case overview

Our claim was successful in Scotland’s Inner Court of Session, and the Government’s appeal (heard alongside Gina Miller’s team’s appeal of their defeat in the English courts) was roundly dismissed in an historic, unanimous decision by the UK Supreme Court.
