Senior Advocates cannot mention the cases for out-of-turn hearing from now on; only AoRs can: CJI

On 20.09.2017, putting an end to the practice of allowing senior lawyers to mention cases seeking their out-of-turn listing and hearing, Chief Justice Dipak Misra directed that now onwards only Advocates-on-Record (AoR) would be authorised to mention cases for out-of-turn hearing.

The said direction is an outcome of an incident that occurred yesterday in the Chief Justice’s court after some lawyers were denied permission to mention cases. A junior lawyer complained that while his senior colleagues were being allowed to mention matters for urgent hearing, junior members of the bar were denied such opportunities.

Must Watch

The Supreme Court Collegium stated that every individual is entitled to maintain their own dignity and individuality, based on sexual orientation. Senior Advocate Kirpal’s openness about his orientation goes to his credit and rejecting his candidature on this ground would be contrary to the constitutional principles laid down by the Supreme Court.
