Justice Mehta was part of the five-judge Bench which recently held that two causes of action – one for relief in respect of passing off, and another in respect of design infringement under the Designs Act, 2000 – can be joined and tried in a composite suit. The draft judgment was authored by Justice Mehta. While the other four judges concurred with his opinion, they added additional reasons for arriving at their conclusion.
