Campos Sánchez-Bordona urges ECJ to open "a third way" allowing as @JolyonMaugham argues, MPs to "cancel Brexit without cost"
"this would open a third way, namely remaining in the European Union in the face of an unsatisfactory Brexit"
From the full text of the AG opinion -

“the question cannot be characterised as superfluous or unnecessary [AS UK GOVERNMENT ARGUED], since the answer will have the effect of clarifying the options open to MPs when casting their votes"
“the answer to the question… will enable MPs to know whether there is a third way available to them, not only the alternatives open to them at present (rejection or approval... and statement on the United Kingdom Government’s course of action in the absence of an agreement)
“ruling may produce legal effects, in so far as it would authorise the litigants who are members of the United Kingdom Parliament to take an initiative, based on EU law, in favour of unilaterally revoking the notification of the intention to withdraw”
No second referendum needed
And what is ECJ's overriding objective?
"Ever closer union" (of course)
