London (AP) - A Scottish appeals court has declared the mandatory rest of the British Parliament imposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as unlawful. This reported the British news agency from the courtroom. About 75 parliamentarians had sued. They see Johnson's closure of the House of Commons for weeks before the country's October 31st exit from the EU as an inadmissible restriction on Parliament. Similar lawsuits were filed before courts in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and London.
