EU Court ruled UK can cancel Brexit

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the UK has right to  cancel their request to withdraw form the European Union (EU) under Article 50 procedure, commonly known as Brexit, without asking for permission from other member states of the bloc.

The decision followed the opinion given last week in a less official and not binding procedure to the court from a top European law expert.

The case was brought by a group of Scottish lawmakers who sought a legal ruling on the UK request under Article 50 to leave the EU could be unilaterally revoked before the deadline of March 29, 2019.
