Govt-empanelled Lawyers Boycott Calcutta HC Judge's Court as She ‘Heckles’ Them During Hearings

Government-empanelled Lawyers at the Calcutta High Court Boycotted Judge’s Court as She ‘Heckles’ Them During Hearings

Kolkata: In a rare move, government-empanelled lawyers at the Calcutta High Court Monday told Justice Samapti Chattopadhyay that they will henceforth not attend her court.

Additional Government Pleader Bhaskar Baishya told Justice Chattopadhyay, soon after she entered the courtroom for holding hearing of cases, that government-empanelled lawyers have resolved not to attend her court.

“The way the judge is heckling government lawyers during the hearing of various cases, it is not possible for us to attend her court,” Baishya, also the chairman of Trinamool Congress Lawyers’ Cell, told PTI outside the courtroom.

Justice Chattopadhyay made some caustic comments against the West Bengal government last week over conducting confidence votes in some civic bodies in the state.

Baishya said that the government-empanelled lawyers had written to Advocate General Kishore Dutta to forward the letter about their resolution not to attend Justice Chattopadhyay’s court to the Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court.
