Brexit case to be heard by Britain's supreme court

The most important case in a generation before the supreme court in Britain will begin in London Monday morning.


The decision by the supreme court will have a major implication for the British constitution over who wields power, parliament or the British government, currently led by Prime Minister Theresa May.


  • For the first time in its history, all 11 judges will hear the case which has aroused worldwide interest. The hearing is expected to last four days and the final decision will be made early January.


The supreme court is expected to rule whether parliament has the authority to trigger Britain's exit from the European Union (EU).

May continues to insist that under the centuries old principle of the Royal Prerogative her government has the power to start the process of leaving the EU following the June 23 referendum vote which backed Brexit.
