Scotland's highest court of appeal on Wednesday ruled that Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks in the run-up to Brexit was unlawful as it had the purpose of hampering debate.

Three judges at the Edinburgh-based Court of Session overturned a previous verdict and ruled in favor of 78 MPs and peers who challenged the prime minister's decision to request the prorogation, claiming it was designed to cut them out of the Brexit process.
