Scottish court rules Boris Johnson’s prorogation of parliament is unlawful


The court will issue parties
with drafts of the opinions which have been prepared by each
judge since the hearing last week. I emphasise, that these are draft
opinions which are being issued because of the urgency
of the situation and they will be subject to typographical
and other minor corrections of which there are quite a few,
in the course of the week. Each opinion expresses the
view that the advice given by the government to
Her Majesty the Queen to prorogue parliament from
9 September to 14 October was unlawful, and therefore
the prorogation itself is unlawful.
