Re: [mpisgmedia] Court Craft (a few matters heard on 27/07/05 in Delhi High Court)

My My, what a busy beaver our "litigant" has been.


"Meanwhile, MIB who counsel me are doing needful to
file something called caveat and I am overjoyed by
prospect of new item on my cv as litigant."

Caveats are extremely powerful things (as Mr. Lodha of
Priyamvada Birla fame can testify), causing long
delays and hurdles in our Justice system, and should
be (mis)used with caution. Speeedy dispensation of
Justice being a cornerstone of our Legal system:
Caveats and other MIB tactics ought to be brought
under the microscope of Judicial reform promptly.
