R (on the application of AM and others) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (liberty to apply - scope - discharging mandatory orders)

Immigration – Practice. The defendant Secretary of State had unlawfully failed to comply with previous orders of the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) (the UT), which included a direction that she shall start the process of making a fresh lawful decision forthwith and shall complete that process at the latest by midnight on a specified date. The UT held that the further decisions constituted a hopelessly inadequate attempt to comply with the its orders and judgments, and granted the claimants' application for a declaration under a liberty to apply provision.
