Court of Appeals hears Zambrano appeals

14th July 2017

Julia Smyth, instructed by the Government Legal Department, represented the Secretary of State for the Home Department (“SSHD”) in two of three appeals heard by the Court of Appeal on 12 and 13 July. David Blundell of Landmark Chambers represented SSHD in the other appeal.

The appeals concern the application, in different scenarios, of the principle set out by the Court of Justice of the European Union in the case of Zambrano v Office national de l’emploi [2012] QB 265, recently considered by the CJEU in Case C-133/15 Chavez Vilchez and others (judgment on 10 May 2017). Judgment has been reserved.
