BHATIA BEST this morning attended court to receive judgment in one of the biggest constitutional cases in legal history.
Acting for a host of children and vulnerable families the firm were invited by the Divisional Court, led by Lord Chief Justice Thomas to make submissions on the impact of invoking Article 50 without Acts of Parliament to protect the rights and freedoms enjoyed by millions as a member of the European Union.
In a landmark judgment the Divisional Court unanimously held that the Prime Minister does not have prerogative power to invoke Article 50 without the agreement of parliament.
Commenting outside the court immediately after the decision was announced, Stuart Luke said, “This decision has been received by our many clients as a great relief. We have been inundated with messages of thanks. We look forward to continuing our work to protect these important members of our society.”
