The U.K. High Court of Justice held Thursday that Britain cannot leave the European Union, by triggering article 50, without an act of Parliament. The move is a setback for the popular Brexit referendum and Prime Minister Theresa May’s announced plan to start the process by the end of March. Michael Gordon, a professor at Liverpool University Law School, and Steven Peers, a professor at the University of Essex School of Law speak with Greg Stohr on Bloomberg Radio’s “Bloomberg Law” program.
