R (on the application of Khan) v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWHC 707 (Admin)
Immigration - Leave to remain - Decision-making - Costs
It was not unreasonable for the Secretary of State to only make a decision regarding leave to remain, without making a further removal decision pursuant to section 10 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999. The Claimant's solicitors had unreasonably pursued the claim, and were therefore ordered to pay the Defendant's costs.
