Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan Decides To Quit Court Practice After Humiliating Heated Exchange With CJI

Unhappy with Supreme Court's outburst, senior lawyer Rajeev Dhawan has decided to give up court practice.

Dhawan wrote a letter to Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and said he has quit court practice after ‘humiliating end’ to the Delhi vs Centre case. “After the humiliating end to the Delhi case, I have decided to give up court practice”. In a letter to Chief Justice Dipak Misra he said;

“You are entitled to take back my Senior Gown conferred on me, though I would like to keep it for memory and services rendered.”

His reaction comes after some recent incidents of senior lawyers trying to outshout each other and allegedly attempting to browbeat judges during high-profile hearings on November 7 had irked the Supreme Court, which said shouting will "not be tolerated at any cost".

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, which was hearing a legal question whether a Parsi woman loses her religious identity after marrying a man of different religion, was upset over the growing incidents of senior lawyers arguing on a high pitch in cases like the Babri Masjid title suit and the Delhi-Centre disputes.
