Do you think you have seen and heard it all?

Well, sometimes when you read through the decisions of the Federal Courts, you can find something that is amazingly, astonishingly, insanely bad.

Are you ready for this one?

I have just learned from colleagues about an excellent result they achieved in the Federal Court.

Their client was granted a visa - a SHEV -  by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (!!).

Late yesterday, we received judgment in Cabrera v Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs [2020] FCA 129 (17 February 2020).

Essentially, this decision affirms the decision of the Federal Circuit Court in this same case, discussed in the article I posted late yesterday afternoon:
