The government of Prime Minister Theresa May will Monday seek to overturn a ruling that it must obtain parliamentary approval before triggering Brexit, in a highly-charged case in Britain's highest court.For the first time ever, all 11 Supreme Court judges will convene for the four-day hearing which threatens to upset May's timetable for leaving the European Union. The High Court ruled last month that the government did not have the executive power alone to invoke Article 50 of the European Union's Lisbon Treaty, formally starting the exit negotiation process. A parliamentary vote on Article 50 could open the door to pro-Europe lawmakers delaying or softening Britain's withdrawal from the bloc.If it does lose, the government is expected to introduce a short bill – reportedly comprising just three lines of text – which it will seek to push rapidly through parliament to authorize the triggering of Article 50 .
