Tale of Two Law Suits a case for Judicare
Why do Courts grant adjournments at the drop of the hat?
Why do they condone delays so routinely and so liberally?
Why do they repeatedly extend the time for filing Written Statements?
Why are ex parte stays granted without a notice to the Respondents?
Why are ad interim stays allowed to remain in force for years together?
Why are frivolous cases not thrown out at the threshold of admission?
Why punitive and exemplary costs are not awarded
in case of frivolous litigations?
Why judgments are not announced soon
after the closure of the hearing?
Why do the Law Courts in India still resemble the
Dickensian ‘Court of Chancery’?
“More admirably, the author moots the concept of
whipping up a peoples’ movement for
‘Judicare’ – an affordable and effective
judicial system for the masses. ”
