    Ruddock prepared to fight child detention ruling
    The Immigration Minister, Philip Ruddock, says he would be willing to fight a Family Court ruling on the indefinite detention of children as far as the High Court.

    The Family Court ruled yesterday that it had the power to order the release of children in detention, declaring indefinite detention illegal.

    Mr Ruddock says he is still seeking legal advice on whether to appeal but says there is an arguable case because one judge dissented.

    He has also refused calls for children to be released if and when an appeal takes place.
