The case sought a referral to the Court of Justice of the EU of the question whether Article 50, once triggered, can unilaterally be revoked by the British government. Do we or don’t we need the consent of all other 27 EU member states.
If the CJEU were to rule that Article 50 is revocable, it would give the UK power to reject the outcome of Article 50 negotiations and remain in the EU should the Brexit negotiations yield a deal that was not acceptable to our Parliament or voters.
For the reasons set forth in this blog post, we decided to discontinue the case.
The £70,000 costs of the litigation were crowdfunded largely from small donations.
