Madras High Court recalls order after senior counsel cries injustice
The Madras High Courtrecalled an order that had already been pronounced after one of the counsels cried injustice in open court, stating it had been passed without hearing her arguments.
The division bench of Justice N. Kirubakaran and Justice B. Pugalendhi passed this order in a writ appeal.
“Counsel appearing for the respondent, after knowing that the matter has gone against the respondent, started making allegations against this Court stating that this Court has done injustice and further she would submit that it is very unfortunate that this Court has passed the judgment in the present Writ Appeal without hearing her arguments and she was under the impression that the Writ Appeal would be dismissed,” the Court said.
“Though the outcry of the Counsel for the respondent amounts to contempt of court and also needs a reference to the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry for taking disciplinary proceedings against her, taking into consideration the fact that she is having a grievance, that she needs to be heard further in detail, this court will provide one more opportunity to the counsel appearing for the respondent to put forth her further arguments in this matter,” the order reads.
