Court Delivers Ruling via Video Conference

Issued: April 01 2009

 

For the first time in the history of the Bombay High Court, the court delivered, on April 16, a judgment through video conferencing. The use of video conferencing came about when Justice AV Nirgude, who was transferred to the court’s Aurangabad bench on April 6, ruled on a case he had heard at the Bombay bench prior to his transfer.

“This system will save a lot of time,” Navdeep Vora, a solicitor for one of the defendents, told the Hindustan Times. “Earlier, cases where judges who were transferred after hearing a case completely, had to re-argued before a new judge, which used to consume a lot of time.”

The video conferencing system had been installed earlier this year for the purpose of holding hearing and for judges to hold conferences with each other.
