Supreme Court to consider relationship between Article 8 and Immigration Rules

Some three years after the radical rewriting of the Immigration Rules for families in 2012, the Supreme Court has granted permission to appeal in two important cases, SS (Congo) [2015] EWCA Civ 387 and Agyarko [2015] EWCA Civ 440. SS (Congo) is reported to be linked with the MM case on the minimum income requirement for spouses but I am not sure about Agyarko.

Permission was refused in:

An employment law claim based on alleged race and/or age discrimination against the Home Office by former employees was also granted permission: Essop and Others [2015] EWCA Civ 609.
