Calcutta High Court imposes cost of Rs 50,000 on lawyer intending to abuse, show ‘red eyes’ to court

The Calcutta High Court has imposed a cost of Rs 50,000 on a lawyer, who intended to show ‘red eyes’ and abuse the court.

The single-judge Bench of Justice Bibek Chaudhuri recently passed the orders on a writ appeal.

Perusing an earlier order in the matter of October 16, 2023, the single-judge Bench noted that Justice Bibek Chaudhuri had ruled that the writ petition would be heard by Justice Suvra Ghosh and hence, the Court ordered that the said direction may be followed as it was claimed that substantially it was heard by Justice Ghosh.

The High Court further noted that the Advocate appearing for the petitioners intended to show his red eyes and abuse the Court.

Taking note of the insulting demeanour shown by the lawyer, the Bench imposed a cost of Rs 50,000 on him and directed him to deposit the amount with the High Court Legal Aid Services Authorities.
