    Britain's government lost a legal fight over Brexit Tuesday — but the ruling was not expected to impact the U.K.'s move to leave the European Union following last year's shock referendum result, NBC News reported.

    The country's Supreme Court said Prime Minister Theresa May must seek approval from parliament before she invokes Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and triggers up to two years of divorce talks.

    It is a setback for May, amid growing criticism that her plans for EU withdrawal are mired in chaos.

    However, many lawmakers have indicated they won't block Brexit in which voters chose to leave the EU by 52 percent against 48 percent voting to remain.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
