In De­cem­ber, the Eu­ro­pean Court of Jus­tice ru­led that the Uni­ted King­dom could uni­la­te­ral­ly halt the Brexit pro­cess. The court sta­ted that the UK had the po­wer to wi­th­draw its no­ti­fi­ca­tion to leave the EU un­der Ar­ticle 50 wi­thout the agree­ment of other mem­ber states. Ho­we­ver, it must do so be­fore the wi­th­dra­wal agree­ment ne­go­tia­ted bet­ween the two par­ties comes in­to force, the court said. The case was brought be­fore the ECJ by pro-Re­main cam­pai­gners in Scot­land, des­pite the Bri­tish go­vern­ment’s op­po­si­tion. Af­ter the ru­ling, The­re­sa May sta­ted that she would not re­voke Ar­ticle 50 be­cause it would be­tray vo­ters who won the 2016 re­fe­ren­dum.
