Dublin case

The Good Law Project sought to establish, via the High Court of Ireland, whether our Parliament could, if it wanted to, reverse our decision to leave the EU.

We sought a referral to the Court of Justice of the EU of the question whether Article 50, once triggered, could unilaterally be revoked by the British government. Do we or don’t we need the consent of all other 27 EU member states.

For the reasons set forth in this blog post, we decided to discontinue the case.

We later relitigated the point successfully in the case brought by us with Andy Wightman MSP and others, which is covered here.
