In this month’s briefing we cover case law and other developments in June and July 2018. Although it is now the summer season there was a lot of activity in the run up to it with some amendments to the Immigration Rules and Home office announcements on proposals for EU nationals in the UK post Brexit. There were a number of significant cases. In Coman and others Case C-673/16 it was established that same sex relationships had to be accepted by EEA states even if they were not recognised in some states provided one of the parties was a returning citizen who had been exercising treaty rights in another member state. On nationality issues Teh  EWHC 1586 decided that a British Overseas Citizen may qualify as stateless. QR (Pakistan) R (oao) v SSHD  EWCA Civ 1413 looks at the implications of the decision in Kiarie & Byndloss for those already removed. There is a new Iraq Country Guidance case, AAH (Iraqi Kurds - internal relocation) Iraq  UKUT 00212. There are also cases looking at EEA retained rights of residence; the sustainability of decision made more than three months after the hearing; a decision ending the automatic extension of time for an acknowledgement of service; further warnings regarding the conduct of parties in bring appeals; and, many more.
