Skeleton Argument in relation to our Supreme Court Brexit Challenge

Application to the Supreme Court by Raymond McCord for Judicial Review: Full Document Here

Excerpt:

Raymond McCord comes before the Supreme Court by way of a reference on a ‘devolution issue’ made pursuant to paragraph 9 of Schedule 10 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 [Northern Ireland (‘NI’) bundle – N-3] by the Court of Appeal in Northern Ireland with the consent of the parties on 18 November 2016. This is the Applicant’s case in support of answering the referred question in the affirmative.

Does the triggering of Article 50 Treaty of European Union (‘TEU’) by the exercise of the prerogative power without the consent of the people of Northern Ireland impede the operation of section 1 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998? [APPENDIX (‘APP’) pp 1-4]
