Scotland's highest court said on Wednesday it would wait until Oct. 21 on whether to issue a ruling to force British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to abide by a law compelling him to seek a Brexit delay, a lawmaker involved in the case said.

Anti-Brexit campaigners had sought an order from the court asking it to order Johnson to abide by a law that requires him to ask for a Brexit extension if he has failed to secure a deal by Oct. 19 and send the letter to the European Union if he refused to do so himself.

"Delighted to advise Scotland’s Supreme Court is holding off ruling on whether to force @BorisJohnson to send #Brexit #extension #BennAct letter until 21 Oct to give PM time to fulfill the promise he made to the court," Joanna Cherry said on Twitter. "A victory for us & all our supporters."
