Said and others v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. The judge had been fully entitled to find that the defendant Secretary of State's delayed determination of the claimants' applications for settlement in the United Kingdom, between 2004 and 2014, had crossed the threshold of 'mere' maladministration and into manifestly excessive delay. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the Secretary of State's appeal, further held that the judge had not adopted a materially unfair trial process and the suggestion of referring the case to the complaints procedure had been a hopeless one.
