You Have To Use More Persuasive Skills At Registry : Justice Gavai To Lawyer Seeking Urgent Listing

Justice BR Gavai, judge of the Supreme Court, remarked in a lighter vein on Wednesday that a lawyer may have to use more persuasive skills before the Registry to get urgent listing of a case.

"We are granting you circulation. Now you've to persuade the Registry. You have to use your persuasive skills there more than here", Justice Gavai told a lawyer who was mentioning a matter for urgent listing.

Justice Gavai is heading a vacation bench of the Supreme Court. Yesterday, he had commented that the vacations benches do not have the administatrive powers of the Chief Justice of India to list and allot cases. He had made the remark responding to a lawyer's submission that a case did not get listed despite an earlier direction given by the bench.

"We never faced this difficulty in High Courts. In High Courts, a vacation judge has to be judge for all purposes even for administrative purposes, Here, we are controlled by Registry. If it's allotted to us, we're willing to hear it even at 2 pm. Unless it is allotted to us, our hands are tied", Justice Gavai had said.
