Supreme Court: Suspending Parliament was unlawful, judges rule

from BBC,

Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks was unlawful, the Supreme Court has ruled.

Judges said it was wrong to stop MPs carrying out duties in the run-up to the Brexit deadline on 31 October. The PM, who has faced calls to resign, said he "profoundly disagreed" with the ruling but would "respect" it.

The court ruling does not prevent him from proroguing again in order to hold one, as long as it does not stop Parliament carrying out its duties "without reasonable justification".
