MR JUSTICE NICOL:
"...make a quick decision on their client's case as wealth of documentary evidence has been supplied which makes his case clear cut under paragraph 276 ADE of the Immigration Rules."
By 15 April 2013, no decision had been taken. The claim form was issued, arguing that the failure to take a decision on the claimant's application was unlawful.
"It is uncertain what rules or policies did apply to a pre 9 July 2012 application for regularisation outside the rules on the basis of a relationship with a British national but the decision letter only applies criteria that do not appear to be applicable to an application that was not a Part 8 application." [Viz, an application under part 8 of the statement of changes laid on 13 June 2012.]
An application to amend formally the claim form to adopt Blake J's ground of challenge was not opposed by Mr Malik on behalf of the Secretary of State for the Home Department.
