Boris Johnson Wins Court Challenge Over Alleged Brexit Lies

Boris Johnson has won a High Court challenge against allegations he lied to the public during the 2016 Brexit referendum campaign, CNN reports.

Johnson was accused of falsely stating that Britain's membership of the bloc cost $442 million a week.

The controversial claim was plastered on the side of a bus that toured Britain during the tightly fought campaign that resulted in a 52-48% vote for Brexit.

Judges at London's High Court on Friday quashed the attempt to prosecute Johnson.
