LONDON (AP) — Former British Prime Minister John Major accused current leader Boris Johnson of a “conspicuous” failure to explain why he suspended Parliament for five weeks, as a landmark Brexit case at the Supreme Court came to a head today.

Meanwhile, the European Union and Britain announced new talks on an elusive divorce deal, even as they squabbled over whether or not the U.K. had brought any new ideas to the table.

The U.K.’s top court is sitting to decide whether Johnson broke the law by sending lawmakers home just weeks before the U.K. is due to leave the European Union on Oct. 31.
