Gujarat High Court Chief Justice (CJ) Sunita Agarwal Monday said that she has decided to do away the practice of advocates seeking adjournments in fresh matters by filing 'leave or sick notes'..This development came about after an advocate sought adjournment in a freshly filed case, citing a leave note filed by the advocate representing one of the parties. "This is a fresh matter. We cannot allow adjournments like this by virtue of leave notes. From tomorrow onwards, no fresh matter will be adjourned on the basis of such leave or sick notes," the Chief Justice said. She further instructed her staff to put up a notice indicating the same. .The usual practice in Gujarat High Court is that advocates who are unable to attend a hearing can seek adjournments by filing prior leave or sick notes. However, the practice won't be applicable for fresh matters now, the CJ said.The Chief Justice since taking charge, has done away a few practices prevalent in the High Court such as issuing rule nisi in bail matters and hearing the same after more than two weeks.
