R (Detention Action) v Secretary of State for the Home Department
2013 – 2014
 EWHC 2245 (Admin),  EWCA Civ 1270,  EWCA Civ 1634
Detention Action challenged the lawfulness of the SSHD’s Detained Fast Track policy and practice. The Administrative Court found the practice to be unlawful in one respect, but permitted the DFT scheme to continue. The Court of Appeal upheld the judge’s decision. A differently constituted Court of Appeal held the appeal element of DFT to be unlawful.
