Cherry Case

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

Our claim was successful in Scotland’s Inner Court of Session, and the Government 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, acting in its constitutional capacity.

The decision will have far reaching positive consequences for our democracy for decades to come.
