New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed a plea seeking restriction on appearance of senior advocate Fali S. Nariman in the Supreme Court.
A division bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V. Kameswar Rao dismissed the plea filed by lawyer Mathews J. Nedumpara, who said that Nariman should not be allowed to practice before the apex court as his son, Justice Rohinton Nariman is a sitting judge there.
"The scheme of justice should be unbiased and it must manifestly appear so," Nedumpara said.
The petition has also sought an appropriate direction to the Collegium members of the Supreme Court and the Central Government to take appropriate steps to secure transfer of the Judges of High Courts, where their kin practice as lawyers.
