Update in the Article 50 Case in Edinburgh
Shortly before Christmas we filed our written case before the Court of Session in Edinburgh. You can read it here. The purpose of the case is to determine whether the Article 50 notice can be revoked unilaterally or we need the consent of the other 27 member states to revoke the notice.
And late last week the Government filed its response – which you can read here.
The next step is for the Court of Session to decide, within 14 days, whether to grant permission for the claim to continue on the basis of the papers; or to direct an oral hearing to determine whether permission should be granted; or to refuse permission.
We will, of course, keep you posted.
