Court of Appeal dismisses Article 50 Brexit challenge


R (Wilson & Ors) v Prime Minister 

Following a day long oral hearing, the Court of Appeal (Hickinbottom and Haddon-Cave LJJ) has dismissed a wide-ranging crowd-funded claim for judicial review which sought to challenge the outcome of the EU Referendum, the giving of Article 50 notification to leave the EU and the alleged subsequent inaction of the Prime Minister in the face of the Electoral Commission’s findings of breaches of campaign finance requirements during the 2016 EU Referendum campaign. 

A written judgment will be available in due course.

Joseph Barrett of 11KBW acted successfully for the Prime Minister.
