Britain’s Supreme Court hears cases that PM Johnson’s parliament suspension was illegal


LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government will try to persuade Britain’s top court this week that his decision to suspend parliament until shortly before the date for Brexit was not illegal as Scottish judges concluded last week. Johnson announced on Aug. 28 that he had asked Queen Elizabeth to prorogue or suspend, parliament for five weeks from last week until Oct. 14, saying the shutdown was necessary to allow him to introduce a new legislative agenda.
