The Scottish First Minister has said Tuesday’s ruling raises fundamental issues for Scotland.
It has been judged the UK Government is “not legally compelled” to consult devolved administrations before formally starting the Brexit process.
But the fiery Ms Sturgeon has warned Westminster and said the SNP will work with other parties to derail the EU exit.
“It is vital that the Westminster Parliament is now given the fullest possible opportunity to debate and decide upon the triggering of Article 50 and also the terms of the UK’s negotiating position,” she said.
“SNP MPs will seek to work with otter’s across the House of Commons to stop the march towards a hard Brexit in its tracks.”
Continuing she said: “It is now crystal clear that the promises made to Scotland by the UK Government about the Sewel Convention about the importance of embedding it in statue were not worth the paper they were written on.”

She added: “This raises fundamental issues and beyond that of EU membership. Is Scotland content for our future to be dictated by an increasingly right-wing Westminster Government with just one MP here – or is it better that we take our future into our own hands? It is becoming ever clearer that this is a choice that Scotland must make.”
Following the Supreme Court verdict the SNP announced it will table 50 amendments to any White Paper published by the UK Government.
Ruth Davidson, the Scottish Tory leader, criticised the SNP for its repeated Brexit “stunts”.
The Conservative MSP insisted: "The SNP tried to use this hearing to hold the rest of the UK to ransom. It has comprehensively failed to do so."
While she said "all parties should now respect the ruling that the court has given", Ms Davidson added that "typically Nicola Sturgeon has decided to ignore it by stating – even before the verdict was in – that she would still seek a separate vote at Holyrood".
The Tory leader argued: "Whatever side people were on last year, Scotland wants to get on with the negotiations so we can start to leave the uncertainty of the last few years behind us.

BORDER-FREE Schengen: Countries you can visit WITHOUT a passport
Mon, January 23, 2017
If you are an EU national, you do not need to show your national ID card or passport when you are travelling from one border-free Schengen EU country to another. The Schengen Area is an area comprising 26 European states that have officially abolished passport and any other type of border control at their mutual borders.

"We have all had enough of the nationalists using every diversionary tactic they can to try to use Brexit to manufacture a case for separation.
"The SNP needs to decide does it want Britain's renegotiation to succeed or fail?
"If it is the former, it needs to end the attempts to sow division and add to the uncertainty we face, and instead get behind the UK attempt to get the right deal for the whole UK."
It will also be a blow to the Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones and Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood.
The pair this week unveiled plans arguing for the UK to remain in the single market.

In a statement, the Welsh Government said: “We welcome the Supreme Court Judgment today which means that the UK Government must seek parliamentary approval in the form of a Bill before it can trigger Article 50 to leave the European Union. It is vital that the UK Government develops an approach to negotiations which reflects the interests of Wales and the UK as a whole – an approach to which the Prime Minister has already publicly committed.

“The judgment preserves and recognises the importance of the Sewel convention whereby Parliament will not normally legislate on areas devolved to Wales and devolved governments without their consent.
“The Welsh Government will continue to work closely with the UK Government, and the other Devolved Administrations, through the Joint Ministerial Committee process to influence the overall UK position. Our aims are to preserve single market access for business and to protect Welsh jobs and investment, along with the rights of workers.
