24 January 2017

The Supreme Court has today handed down its judgment in R(Miller & others) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union [2017] UKSC 5, upholding the decision of the divisional court [2016] EWHC 2768 (Admin).  The Supreme Court ruled by a majority of 8 to 3 that the government cannot use the royal prerogative to trigger Article 50 and therefore requires an act of Parliament to do so.  Matthieu Grégoire, led by Patrick Green QC and Henry Warwick and instructed by Crofts Solicitors, successfully represented members of Fair Deal for Expats both in the Divisional Court and on appeal to the Supreme Court.
