EU's Top Court Will Give 'Quick' Verdict On Whether UK Can Reverse Brexit

Europe’s top court said on Tuesday it would decide “quickly” whether Britain can unilaterally reverse its decision to leave the European Union.

Supporters of EU membership hope the ruling could lead to a second referendum and ultimately stop Brexit.

Lawyers for a group of Scottish politicians want the European Court of Justice to interpret whether Britain can revoke its notice to withdraw from the EU under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty without agreement of the other 27 states.

Britain is due to exit the EU on March 29, two years after London served notice in line with a June, 2016 vote to leave.

But the fate of Brexit remains up in the air, with Prime Minister Theresa May’s draft divorce deal facing a difficult vote in parliament on Dec.

11.

May has said that if her deal is voted down, Britain could leave without a deal or there could be no Brexit at all.
