The court hasn't made an interim order to suspend prorogation, which they could do, presumably because the Supreme Court hearing is already lined up next week.

The full judgement will be published on Friday - and is likely to be embarrassing for the government - the summary judgement is that the court held that prorogation of Parliament is unlawful if it's used for the purposes of stopping parliamentary scrutiny, ie, they didn't believe the UKG's rationale. Unanimous decision of three judges.
