CJI restores ‘oral mentioning’

Oct 2, 2012

On the first day after assuming charge, Chief Justice of India Altamas Kabir restored in the Supreme Court the concept of ‘oral mentioning’ and requests through applications for early hearing of matters.

Sep 22, 2012

NEW DELHI: At a time when it is the norm to seek legal opinion prior to taking a decision, the Supreme Court has come to the rescue of lawyers by ruling that they cannot be prosecuted for rendering wrong advice if there is no link between them and perpetrators of a fraud or offence.

But the court said the advocate's opinion must be bona fide as all legal practitioners owe "an unremitting loyalty to the interests of a client and it is the lawyer's responsibility to act in a manner that would best advance the interest of the client". Read more.
