The protocol aims to ensure that EU rules are applied in Ireland without introducing border controls between Ireland and Northern Ireland. As a result, controls on the movement of goods threaten to move to the border between the mainland British island and Northern Ireland.

The lawsuit was reportedly filed by party leader Arlene Foster and her deputy Nigel Dodds and members of the DUP in the London Parliament.
