Cartoon by depicting the case. A binder full of arguments for Forward as One and a post-it-note with "Just Go Away" being the standpoint of the UK Government.

Email sent to backers in the Section 30 case: Dear Backers, Further to my previous email on the matter of standing with the court. It occurs to me that it affords an opportunity for each of you to make your feelings known about the fact that you support the case.

The UK Government and Scottish Government have now formally lodged their submissions. Unfortunately, at this stage, publishing them requires their consent and both have declined to allow it at this stage. I will, however, update everyone when I can as we progress.

This morning it feels like waking with a substantive weight on one's shoulders. Our reasonable offer to sist (pause) the action against the UK Gov on Indyref2, in light of COVID 19 disruption, has been met with humming and hawing after a month and on that basis, a few minutes...

A period of "adjustments" will then be afforded by the court to allow all sides to review each other's submissions and tweak their own. From this point on it is mostly administrative. Realistically the big things start to happen around mid May.

At the conclusion of the seven day period. Our legal counsel will then prepare what is called the "open record". This is basically an amalgamated collection which incorporates both the Summons and the Defences.

Once it calls in court. The UK Government and the Scottish Government will have a period of seven days to "lodge defences". In reality, it will take the form of the UK Government lodging disagreement with why they think it is not competent for the Scottish Parliament...

This will bring us to the 14th of April 2020. On the 14th, our legal counsel will formally lodge the summons with the court. At this point, it will formally "Call in Court".

As you all know, on Friday, we formally served the summons on the Advocate General of the UK Government. This was by recorded delivery. There is a 21 day period of "service" and that clock starts today.

There are quite a few asking about the timetable moving forward on the case, so we can give you a preliminary idea of what happens next in terms of judicial review. However, please be advised that this is subject to change in light of
