Prime Minister Theresa May told European Union leaders Friday she was confident a court ruling that could delay Britain's departure from the bloc would be overturned and she vowed to stick to her Brexit timetable.May assured German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker that she believed her case – that the government and not Parliament should be responsible for triggering Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty to launch the divorce – would win in Britain's highest court, a spokesman said.The government will appeal against the ruling in the Supreme Court, which is expected to consider it early next month.Parliament is unlikely to defy the referendum vote by blocking Brexit, but if – as one aide to May said was the logical conclusion of the court ruling – she is forced to draft legislation for both houses to consider, her March deadline looks tight, several lawmakers said.
