The High Court in London has ruled that the British government requires parliamentary approval to trigger the process of exiting the European Union.
The government, which had planned to start the EU divorce without going through parliament, said it would appeal against the ruling and the Supreme Court has set aside Dec. 5-8 to hear the case.
The stage is now set for a period of political uncertainty while ministers digest the ruling and how to respond to it.
