Following Up on the #MMCase

Okay, it has been much delayed, I know. I’ve been wrapped up in my own little world, it seems, for some time now and I missed the news that had been announced… well back in April. In my defence, it isn’t an actual ruling by the supreme court, so – as with a lot of […]

#MMCase Caution

Disclaimer: I am an armchair critic who did not even attend the hearing of the MM case in the Supreme Court. Going off of what we learned from the Court of Appeal’s ruling, I am not hedging any bets either way with how things are going to go. Judges are a special brand of people […]

Ruling on MM & Ors -v- Secretary of State (Home Office)

Via BritCits: “CONFIRMED Judgment in MM and Ors vs SSHD to be handed down Friday 11 July, 10:30am, Courtroom 3 (Justice Aikens). Fingers, toes, all crossed please!” For many, this journey has been two years in the making – since the new rules came into effect in June 2012 (for a grand total of 3,641 […]
