Angry visa subclass 600 (Sponsored Family Stream)

Good afternoon, I would like to ask if my interpretation of the legislation is correct and the immigration CO is wrong. I lodged 2 online applications for a tourist visa under sponsored family stream for my sister and her husband.
My sister got approved, the husband got refused because he is my 'in-law' and therefore not part of the family unit.

Two things I wanted to ask -
1) I lodged 2 separate applications with 2 separate sponsorship form. Each other's names as travelling companions are on the forms. Marriage certificates, birth certificates, employment, leave approvals etc are complete for the husband. Now, Clause 600.232 2(c) states a relative of another applicant in relation to whom the applicant is a member of the
family unit. Doesn't the husband fall into this??

3) Is it correct that I completed and lodged a separate application for the husband and just noted that he is travelling with the wife who is my sister?

I am so annoyed that i am thinking to bring this to the tribunal. Or is there another way? The travel period I asked for is 3 months from Dec 8 to March 4. is it even worth fighting this at the tribunal please?

Thanking you in advance for your insight.
