Prime Minister Theresa May was urged Saturday to try to quell the furor sparked by a High Court ruling that she needs parliamentary approval before triggering Britain's exit from the EU.May spent Friday trying to assure European leaders that Thursday's verdict would not affect her timetable for triggering Article 50, the formal procedure for leaving the European Union.Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was expected to call on May to set out her Brexit negotiating strategy in parliament "without delay" in the wake of the High Court ruling.On Friday, May telephoned European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, European Council President Donald Tusk, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande.The High Court decision raises the prospect of a protracted parliamentary debate, although EU leaders have urged a swift departure.The resignation leaves May's government with a slim working majority of 14 in the 650-member House of Commons.
