This interim injunction has yet to be confirmed at a hearing on 6 September.
Scotland's highest civilian court had been seized as a matter of urgency by a group of 75 pro-European parliamentarians seeking to declare the suspension of Parliament illegal, making it virtually impossible for them to block an exit from the European Union without agreement. This suspension angered the opposition and part of the public. A petition collected nearly 1.6 million signatures on Friday at midday.
Another appeal filed on behalf of a North Irish human rights activist, Raymond McCord, is also to be heard by the High Court of Northern Ireland on Friday morning. Former Conservative Prime Minister John Major, opposed to Brexit, also announced Friday that he will join a third lawsuit against the suspension of Parliament, brought by anti-Brexit activist Gina Miller. The hearing will take place on 5 September in London.
