Points Based System flexibility to be considered by Supreme Court

The case of Rodriguez, Mandalia and Patel [2014] EWCA Civ 2 is to be reconsidered by the Supreme Court, this months grants of permission reveals. The case concerns the ‘evidential flexibility’ policy that I think was first publicly revealed here on Free Movement. It is a chance for the Supreme Court to grapple with the insanely complex requirements of the PBS and consider whether the system is a fair and lawful one. Also going up to the Supreme Court is TN (Afghanistan) & Anor v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2013] EWCA Civ 1609 on the issue of whether judicial review is an adequate remedy for the purposes of EU law on asylum.
