#BombayHighCourt #Courtroomexchange

Justice GS Patel is informed in a case that a lawyer who earlier appeared for the defendant has now appeared for the plaintiff.

I know our standards have slipped but this much!?
There is no consideration of any consequence any longer.
Justice Patel: What happened to our ability to say no!
I don’t understand how this lawyer entertained the plaintiff in his office, forget about drafting the plaint, and taking instructions. Is it possible to say that, that was a different matter.. Really?

Justice Patel: I know how it is done to get around, but here there is no pretence.
Maybe we should just shop on the original side and go! Just close it down. Because then this has become a market place.
