Boris Johnson suspension of Parliament is unlawful, Scottish court rules

Boris Johnson‘s suspension of Parliament has been dominated as illegal by judges at Scotland’s highest civil court.

A bunch of round 70 parliamentarians had appealed towards a ruling that Mr Johnson’s prorogation of Parliament is lawful.

Judge Lord Doherty initially dismissed a problem towards the suspension – which went forward within the early hours of Tuesday – on the Court of Session final Wednesday, saying it is for politicians and never the courts to resolve.

But three judges of the Inner House, the supreme civil court in Scotland, disagreed with Lord Doherty’s ruling.

The UK Government plans to enchantment towards the newest ruling to the Supreme Court.

SNP MP Joanna Cherry tweeted: “All 3 judges in Scotland’s Highest court of appeal rule #Prorogation #unlawful! #Cherrycase succeeds.”

She added: “Huge thanks to all our supporters & our fantastic legal team who have achieved the historic ruling.”

Judge Lord Doherty dismissed a problem towards the deliberate prorogation on the Court of Session final Wednesday, saying it is for politicians and never the courts to resolve.

Liberal Democrats MP Luciana Berger tweeted: “As one of the Petitioners to this case, this is such an important ruling – although how awful that it’s had to come to this. “
