R (Francis) v Home Secretary
 EWCA Civ 718,  1 WLR 567
The Appellant was detained for deportation after a criminal court recommended that he be deported. Subsequent administrative detention reviews were legally flawed.
Where deportation flows from the Home Secretary’s decision, a legally-flawed detention review could mean that the next period of detention was unlawful and amounted to false imprisonment. In a court-recommended case, did the statute authorise that detention so that the appellant was not entitled to damages for false imprisonment?
