The Gujarat High Court has resolved to boycott all official functions of the High Court such as Full Court reference, oath ceremony of the Chief Justice, or any Judges except those personally invited by the judge designate and Lok Adalats due to non-resumption of Physical Hearing.

Noting that a resolution in this regard has been made public by the Association, it states thus:

"GHAA unanimously resolves to boycott all official functions which may be organized by the High Court of Gujarat such as Full Court reference, oath ceremony of the Hon'ble Chief Justice or any Hon'ble Judges except those personally invited by the judge designate and Lok Adalats. It is further resolved not to accord any welcome or farewell to any Hon'ble judge either on appointment, elevation, or retirement."

The resolution further states that despite frantic requests and appeals by the lawyers, the Court has not started physical functioning.

The Bar has also decided to hold parallel functions to celebrate events of national and constitutional importance like 26" January, 15" August, and 2 October.

However, the Association has, as a last resort and to avoid any friction, confrontation, and feeling of ill will and distrust requested the Chief Justice and his companion judges to start the physical functioning of the High Court from 28.07.2021.

"If the request is acceded to, the resolution shall automatically cease to operate," adds the resolution. 

Lastly, the Association has also resolved to hold a peaceful dharna outside Gate no. 2 of the High Court on Monday in keeping with the norms of social distancing, wearing of a mask, and other SOPs prescribed by the State of Gujarat.
