Is that relevant?

The question is whether the rest of the EU decides article 50 has been invoked and from their point of view, a simple statement is sufficient. Assuming they think its been done, it happens automatically. I don't see how what the UK courts think is relevant or what they could do - impose their will on the French and the Germans? What would they do? Interfere with internal UK affairs? I think we just had a referendum about that.
