Virtual Courts or no court at all ; Supreme Court snapping at Lawyers for insisting on open court hearings

New Delhi: Two instances took place at the Supreme Court during hearings on Wednesday, 15.07.2020, where the lawyers stated that it is not possible to hold a virtual hearing because documents run up to thousands of pages and insisted on an open court hearing by normal procedure as lawyers are unable to argue properly or are sometimes disrupted or cut short.

Snapping at lawyers during the hearing of petitions challenging Maratha quota in jobs & educational institutions, Justice L. Nageswara Rao stated that "On one hand you want an urgent hearing. Then you don't want virtual courts too. Then let us close down virtual courts too".

The bench also said virtual court has begun so that even during Covid-19 things proceed. So, everything will go forward with the virtual court and begin day to day final hearing on petitions challenging 12 per cent of the Maratha Job Reservation and Educational Admissions in Maharashtra from July 27, 2020 via videoconference.

Therefore, the Hon’ble Supreme Court has refused to grant any interim orders.
