Whilst it will not impact on too many members it is worth noting that the House of Lords delivered an important judgement today.

in short:

* HL affirm that the role of an Immigration Judge in an Art 8 appeal is to reach his/her own view on whether HO decision breaches Art 8 ECHR.

* HL reject CA test of having to show 'truly exceptional circumstances to succeed.

And if I may be permitted a little boast me and my colleagues acted for the second appellant.
