Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Must admit I was surprised. Usually the Courts chicken out of making decisions that upset the political apple cart. Look at the fate of the various German court challenges to the EU like the one about euro bailouts.

Must mean the High Court see this as a very serious issue that they could not walk away from.
Will be interesting to see the Supreme Court view.
The English-Welsh courts (and U.K. courts in general) have gotten much more activist since Blair's legal reforms. The reforms we based heavily on US judicial organization and the result was more US-style judicial activism, especially as U.K. jurists are overwhelmingly EU-centric.
