Scottish court rejects bid to declare Johnson's Brexit deal unlawful

LONDON (Reuters) - A Scottish Court rejected on Friday a case which argued that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal was unlawful as it contravenes tax legislation.

“We will review this decision carefully but my instinct is that we are unlikely to proceed to a full hearing ..,” said lawyer Jolyon Maugham who brought the case.
