Brexit: Ex-PM vows legal action if UK Parliament suspended

Brexit: Ex-PM vows legal action if UK Parliament suspendedA former British prime minister threatened Wednesday to take Conservative Party leadership candidate Boris Johnson to court if he tries to suspend Parliament to deliver a U.K. departure from the European Union without a deal. John Major told the BBC it would be unacceptable and against tradition to shut down Parliament, and he would seek a court ruling to overturn it if it happened. Major’s suggestion is important because Parliament has repeatedly signaled its opposition to a no-deal Brexit, but has no obvious way of stopping it.
