Today we have submitted a Renewal Notice to the High Court asking for it to reconsider our claim in an oral hearing.
With the UK’s intention to leave the EU due to take place on 29 March 2019, we’ve also asked for our claim to be expedited to avoid it becoming academic.
On 16 August 2018, Mr Justice Warby agreed “that the question of permission deserves urgent consideration” so we are hopeful of receiving a date for the hearing soon.
As you know, our challenge may focus on Brexit, but at its heart is the need to ensure we have a democratic process that prevents the buying of power and votes.
This all makes our fundraising drive more important than ever.
It is critical that we continue to raise awareness of the UK in EU Challenge and drive donations as these will help us to pay the legal fees needed for the oral hearing.
Please help by sharing our story and encouraging people to donate whatever they can. Anything you can continue to give is also received with our gratitude.
We’ll provide a further update once we know more.
Sue Wilson on behalf of all the claimants
