"He was told at least three times that he should open his mouth" SC reprimands lawyer for not speaking up during Virtual Court
"We strongly deprecate tactics of this kind. We do not want advocates to take advantage of a non-physical hearing system when it is working on both sides", the Court proceeded to caution.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday expressed its ire over the failure of a lawyer to speak during a virtual court hearing, commenting that the lawyer ought to have been upfront with the Court that he was waiting for a Senior Advocate to appear (M/S Dilip Buildcon v. M/S Topworth Infra Pvt Ltd).
