Northern Irish court sets Sept. 6 for challenge to parliament suspension

BELFAST, Aug 30 (Reuters) - A legal challenge seeking to place an interim block on British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s order to suspend parliament will be heard in a Northern Irish court next week, a judge said on Friday.

At a hearing in Belfast’s High Court, Lord Chief Justice Sir Declan Morgan set Sept. 6 for the presentation of legal argument on the interim injunction that is being sought by a rights activist seeking to have the suspension reversed.
