The Wall Street Journal: U.K. Supreme Court begins hearing on Brexit appeal

Britain’s Supreme Court on Monday begins hearing arguments over whether Prime Minister Theresa May has to consult Parliament before starting Britain’s exit from the European Union, in a closely watched case with potentially deep repercussions for the country’s future relationship with the bloc.

The government is appealing a High Court ruling that found the British leader doesn’t have the right to unilaterally trigger exit talks with the EU. If that verdict is upheld, lawmakers could have an opportunity to steer Mrs. May toward an exit with stronger ties to the bloc.

The four-day hearings will be closely watched in the U.K.
