MM case

Finally just received the news we have all been waiting for since 11th July 2014.

The Supreme Court has ordered that the appeal in the case of MM, AM, AF and SJ (more commonly referred to as MM & Others) vs Secretary of State Home Department be GRANTED. (Fist pump!)

They go on to say that the applicant MM will be heard as the Lead Appeal, with the other cases to only deal with the points that MM has not dealt with.

Date to be confirmed though unlikely to be before autumn.  In the meantime, refresh your mind as to what happened at the Court of Appeal by reading this overview.

Note the hashtag for tweets relating to this case on Twitter: #MMcase

Update 15th June: Supreme Court website now denotes confirmation of the grant too: https://www.supremecourt.uk/docs/permission-to-appeal-2015-05.pdf
