Bloomberg

A Scottish court challenge to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s proposal to suspend parliament will be heard on September 6 under an accelerated timetable, a judge said on
Tuesday.
A group of more than 70 British lawmakers want the court in Edinburgh to say it wouldn’t be legal to ask the Queen to suspend parliament. Johnson has refused to rule out the possibility of suspending parliament to force through a no-deal Brexit.
There will be a procedural discussion on September 4 before the main hearing two days later, the judge said.
