The Wall Street Journal: Catalonia’s secession vote suspended by Spanish court

BARCELONA — Spain’s constitutional court on Thursday moved to block Catalonia from holding a referendum on separating from Spain, prompting vows from regional officials to push ahead with the vote in defiance of the ruling.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy had asked the court earlier on Thursday to declare illegal the laws enabling the referendum, which were passed by the Catalan regional parliament just a day earlier.

The court has previously ruled against Catalonia’s steps to hold an independence vote.
