The case was raised to the Luxembourg justices by a Scottish court, where people opposed to Brexit asked for a ruling that would clarify the interpretation of Article 50 of the EU treaty, under which London gave two years notice of its departure.

It is not clear when the ECJ might deliver a final ruling.
