RA (Iraq) v The Secretary of State for The Home Department: CA 17 May 2019

The court considered a third appeal to the Court of Appeal and concerns the Appellant’s so-called ‘limbo’ status, that is to say a continuing stasis, whereby a person is prevented by continuing circumstance from being deported, but also prevented by lack of leave to remain from working, receiving normal State benefits, renting or buying property, or accessing the full range of NHS benefits, which together are said to constitute a disproportionate interference with family or private life under Article 8 of the Convention.
