Great stuff from Charlotte and Alice at the EU Rights and Brexit Hub:

Problems with the IMA’s position on Art. 10 and 13 WA on the scope of the WA

This briefing was shared with counsel for the3million in their preparations for C v Oldham (Case J05MA951) a section 204 Housing Act 1996 appeal.

This briefing:

-  engages with the arguments/suggestions put forward in the skeleton argument published by the IMA, in the case described as Appellant v Council A & C v Council B, addressing appeals under s. 204 of the Housing Act.

- focuses on two aspects of the ‘personal scope” issues of the Withdrawal Agreement – (i) the interpretation of the conditions set down in Article 10 WA; and (ii) whether attainment of pre-settled status should be treated as attainment of Article 13 WA status.

Worth noting that the IMA has rolled back considerably on its initial position following further analysis of the CoA’s decision in AT. - see https://ima-citizensrights.org.uk/app/uploads/2024/02/IMA-Supplementary-Note-Redacted.pdf

Though that revised position is still not without its problems, I think.
