R (on the application of Alessio Rutolo) v Secretary of State for the Home Department



[2021] UT(IAC)

The Home Office had unlawfully refused to make a decision on the Applicant’s application for Settled Status, under the EU Settlement Scheme. It had wrongly claimed that the Applicant had a relevant criminal record, and failed to comply with its timescales for making a decision. Stephen was instructed on a judicial review of the failure to make a decision. At a hearing to consider expedition of the case, the Home Office conceded that a decision would be made in 14 days. A few days after, they conceded the case entirely, and granted the Applicant his Settled Status.
