*Andy Wightman MSP and others v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union

Declaration – Procedure. The Lord Ordinary had erred in declining to make a reference to the Court of Justice of the European Union on the issue of whether, when, and how, the UK's notification to the European Council of its intention to withdraw from the EU could unilaterally be revoked. Accordingly, the Court of Session allowed the petitioners appeal, as opposed by the respondent Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.
