Out of the blue, this arrived in the BritCits inboxes this morning :

A copy of the judgement was attached, which I've uploaded here for posterity : http://www.scribd.com/doc/153242486/05-07-13-approved-judgment
A number of BritCits and Family Immigration Alliance supporters and associates contributed evidence to this case, in the form of their stories.
When we were approached, we rounded a few people up whose stories fitted the profiles they were looking for, and let them tell their stories.
Getting a note like this is the icing on the cake which was a truly excellent week. Thanks to all who contributed, WE MADE A DIFFERENCE. I can't emphasise that enough.
Along with the APPG report, this emphasises to me how all aspects of this campaign - legal, political, grassroots, social media, even academic and artistic - are intedependent, and move forward together. And how people supporting each other and showing solidarity can make a difference.
Previously : 'High Court finds minimum income rules disproportionate and unjustified.' - http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/the-big-news.html
Almost exactly a year after they were first introduced, Mr Justice Blake
sitting in the High Court has in a lengthy, complex and very carefully
considered judgment found that the controversial immigration rules
requiring a minimum income of at least £18,600 for spouse visa
applications are ‘unjustified and disproportionate’ where the sponsor is
a refugee or a British citizen.
