The judges, led by the court’s president Lady Hale, heard appeals over three days arising out of legal challenges in England and Scotland – which produced different outcomes.
The panel held unanimously that Johnson’s advice to the Queen was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating parliament.
Lady Hale’s announcement was welcomed by those fighting for the UK to remain in the EU.All hail Lady Hale & the amazing champion of democracy @thatginamiller & all the other brilliant MPs, lawyers & activists for all their incredible work. Absolute jaw dropping stuff. Heroes.— Ayesha Hazarika (@ayeshahazarika) September 24, 2019The motto on Baroness Hale's coat of arms is Omnia Feminae Aequissimae.

Everyone back on a train to London— Tim Shipman (@ShippersUnbound) September 24, 2019Lady Hale was born in Leeds in 1945, to parents who would both become headteachers and the second of three daughters.Lady Hale looks like the kind of sweet old lady who'd make you tea and offer you a biscuit and then sits down to tell you about all her assassination missions she did for the resistance during the war in occupied France— Ewaphant 🐘 (@EwaSR) September 24, 2019Her scholarly parents obviously rubbed off on her as she graduate Girton College, Cambridge, top of her class.Lady Hale looks up, removes her glasses, stares directly at the Sky News Camera and concludes, "And to Mr Cummings I would add, 'Classic Hale, you punk bitch.'"— Dmitry Grozoubinski (@DmitryOpines) September 24, 2019She became Professor of Law at Manchester University in 1986 and then went on to become a judge in the Family Division of the High Court of Justice.YES LADY HALE YES!— stellacreasy (@stellacreasy) September 24, 2019Her legal career went from strength to strength. A long-standing champion of diversity in the judiciary, she became the first female justice of the court in October 2009, and was appointed deputy president in June 2013.give Lady Hale and her giant spider brooch a statue you cowards— Kirsty Strickland (@KirstyStricklan) September 24, 2019She was appointed the first female president of the Supreme Court in 2017.Who is dressing up as Lady Hale for Halloween on 31st October?— Sophia (@SophiaCannon) September 24, 2019During her time as deputy president, Lady Hale ruled on numerous high-profile cases, including the Brexit appeal.
Johnson is now acing calls to resign after the devastating ruling by the Supreme Court.
Following unanimous ruling by the 11 justices that the five-week prorogation was “void and of no effect” , the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn led calls for the return of MPs to Westminster.
“I will be in touch immediately to demand that parliament is recalled so that we can question the prime minister, demand that he obeys the law that’s been passed by parliament,” he told the Labour Party conference in Brighton.(Infographic supplied by Statista)Related...
