Campaigners drop case in Ireland to test Brexit reversibility

Campaigners drop case in Ireland to test Brexit reversibility
The campaigners, who raised 70,000 pounds ($90,000) in the space of 48 hours last December to fund their challenge, brought the case in Ireland in the hope that it would be referred to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) for a definitive ruling.
They cited the Irish state's opposition, the length of time the case would have taken and the potential scale of costs involved as the reasons for pressing on with their challenge.
"With regret, we have agreed between us and with Ireland that the litigation should be discontinued," British tax specialist Jolyon Maugham, the lawyer behind the challenge, said in a statement on his website.
