The Gujarat High Court on Friday said that it would give priority to over 137 cases which are pending before it for the last 40-50 years and hear at least three to four such cases starting next week..A Division Bench of Chief Justice Aravind Kumar and Justice Ashutosh J Shastri said,"There are some 137 cases that are pending before this Court from last 40 to 50 years. We will give priority to such cases now. We believe that if these cases are not heard and disposed of in time, then the public would lose faith and trust in the judiciary."The Bench further said that it would start hearing these matters daily."From Monday, we will list at least three to four such pending cases on a daily basis. Those matters would be listed on top of the board," the judges added..The observations were made after the Bench came across two matters - a special civil application and a first appeal - both filed in 1985 and still pending before the High Court..The Bench, therefore, heard the final arguments in the first appeal preferred by the State against a private contractor in a tender matter.However, due to paucity of time, it could not complete dictating the orders and said that it would finish doing so on Monday morning.
