Allahabad High Court imposes costs of Rs 9,000 on lawyer for ‘not permitting court to function’, later recalls order on request by Bar President

The Allahabad High Court recently imposed a fine of Rs. 9,000 on an advocate who interfered with the functioning of the court. The Court later recalled the order after a request to that effect was made by the Bar President.

A bench of Justices Kaushal Jayendra Thaker and Gautam Chowdhary originally imposed costs of Rs.5,000/- on the counsel for interfering when counsel for the petitioner was arguing.

The costs were later increased by the Court to Rs. 9,000.

"The cost is enhanced to Rs. 9,000 as the learned counsel for the private respondent not permitting the Court to function," the order said.

The counsel was asked to pay the costs by 2 pm the same day. Later, when the case was taken up at 2 pm, the Bar President requested the Court to show leniency whereupon the Court recalled its order.
