The government has appealed the decision of the High Court, handed down on 3.11.16, which upheld the Claimant’s position that Article 50 could not be triggered without first seeking parliamentary approval.
Bhatia Best Ltd acted in the proceedings in the High Court on behalf of a group of claimants (‘AB Parties’) who defeated the Government.
The appeal is to be heard over 4 days from 5-8 December 2016 by 11 Justices of the Supreme Court.
Written submissions have been filed on behalf of the Respondent parties represented by this firm in response to the appeal. The Respondent’s written case is attached here and will be expanded upon by leading counsel, Manjit Gill QC of No5 Chambers, at the hearing.
