Don’t pass burden on fellow judges: Apex courtAugust 17th, 2011 - 11:36 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 17 (IANS) The Supreme Court has expressed its “strong disapproval” of the approach of certain judges who pass the burden to their fellow judges or to subordinate courts when confronted with complicated issues.
The court said that such an approach weakens our judicial system.
“Of late, we have come across several orders which would indicate that some of the judges are averse to decide the disputes when they are complex and complicated, and would find ways and means to pass on the burden to their brethren or remand the matter to lower courts not for good reasons,” said an apex court bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan Tuesday.
