Brexit: Challenge to UK Parliament suspension rejected – BBC News

A legal challenge over Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament has been rejected, High Court judges have ruled.

The case was brought by businesswoman Gina Miller, who argued the move was “an unlawful abuse of power”.

Rejecting Ms Miller’s case, Lord Justice Burnett said she could immediately appeal because of the important points of law at stake.

The appeal is expected to be heard at the Supreme Court on 17 September.

A similar legal challenge heard at Edinburgh’s Court of Session on Wednesday also failed.

The prime minister announced on 28 August he wanted to shut down Parliament, a process known as proroguing, for five weeks ahead of a Queen’s Speech on 14 October.
