EU court to rule on unilateral Brexit halt
LUXEMBOURG: The EU’s top court will say on Monday whether Britain can unilaterally halt Brexit, potentially offering a boost to those opposed to leaving the EU on the very eve of a crucial and tumultuous vote in the British parliament.
The Court of Justice in Luxembourg said the justices would deliver a ruling in a case brought by Scottish politicians who argue Britain can withdraw its plan to leave in March. If May wins her vote on Tuesday, the withdrawal is likely to proceed. But opinion polls suggest any new majority for staying in the EU is narrow.
