Maya Lester QC

The Divisional Court has given directions for management of the judicial review claims that challenge the Government’s ability to trigger Article 50 of the EU Treaty without recourse to Parliament.  The Court (Lord Justice Leveson and Mr Justice Cranston) has ordered the claims to be joined together, has set a provisional hearing date before the Lord Chief Justice for 15 October 2016, with a possible “leapfrog” procedure straight to the Supreme Court after that with the idea of it being heard by the Supreme Court in December.
