"The historic Brexit legal challenge has drawn to a close with a reminder from the Supreme Court that it will not 'overturn the result of the EU referendum. Lord Neuberger said the case focused on 'the process by which that result can lawfully be brought into effect.' The Supreme Court president promised a decision 'as soon as possible.' The hearing ended with the government's lawyer arguing ministers have the authority to trigger Brexit. The case centres on the whether the UK government has the power to serve notice of its intention to quit the EU under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty or whether, as various campaigners have claimed, it must seek Parliament's authorisation."
