London - Defeat at the UK Supreme Court today would see Prime Minister Theresa May trying to rush a short bill through Parliament to trigger Brexit, a strategy that’s looking increasingly hard to pull off as pro-European lawmakers prepare to fight.

The ruling will be announced at 9:30 on Tuesday in London.
