R (on the application of Hameed and another) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Detention. The judge had made both procedural and substantive errors in declaring the Asylum and Immigration (Fast Track Procedure) Rules 2005, SI 2005/560, to be unlawful, the claimants' detention between 9 July 2013 and 22 October 2013 to have been unlawful and in awarding them substantial damages in respect of such detention. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, remitted the matter for a fresh hearing to decide whether there had been any unlawful detention.
