NOT ALLOWING URGENT HEARING TO POOR LITIGANTS AND TAKING MATTERS OF CORPORATES ON URGENT BASIS!
COMPLAINT FILED AT SUPREME COURT FOR DISCRIMINATION AND VIOLATIONS OF SC NORMS.
Mumbai: Indian Bar Association registered complaint against Justice Ranjit More for discrimination in urgent matter hearing between rich and poor. As per allegation , he allow precipe to rich parties and deny urgent hearing to poor litigants. This miscarriage of Justice has been highlighted by IBA. Many times it has been observed that many courts allow urgent hearing for high face value advocates and poor litigants advocates or party in persons are not getting circulation (urgent hearing ). This is violations of Hon'ble Supreme Court rulings for equality before law. But many judges follow the article 14 ie equality before the law.
Important Points of Complaint:
2. Taking immediate measure to protect dignity of Hon‟ble High Court from arbitrary exercise and misuse of discretion by some Judges like Ranjit More, and Ors and taking action against them for serious violation of Article 14 of the Constitution and breach of the oath taken as a High Court Judge.
3. Taking suo-motu action under contempt of Courts Act as ruled in Re: C.S. Karnan (2017) 2 SCC 756 against Justice Ranjit More and Ors. for wilful disregard and defiance of Supreme Court judgment in Manhari bai‟s case 2013 Cr. L. J.144 for granting undeserving relief to his close Advocate Amit Desai in Charu Sharma‟s case in Criminal Writ Petition No. 671 of 2015 vide order dated 15th July 2019.
4. Direction to C. B. I. to investigate the misuse of power by Justice Ranjit More as per law laid down in Noida Entrepreneurs Association (2011) 6 SCC 508.......................
That, in Bombay High Court the rules for circulation and listing of the case are not framed properly and this grey area is being used by some unethical Judges like Justice Ranjit More to hear the cases of Rich and mighty people with utmost urgency and all other cases of Senior Citizens, victims, Woman, Common Lawyers (excluding his close association) are not being heard and circulation preceipe are being rejected without any valid reason but by arbitrary exercise of the power.
In the case of Shri. Chandrakant Sambhaji Kurle Vs. State Cri. W. P. No. 2993 of 2019 the Petitioners are seeking stay of investigation in the FIR filed on the instance of false complaint under section 498A by falsely claimed legal wife of the Petitioner No. 1, the case was filed against Father and Mother of petitioner who are senior citizen. The falsity of case proved from „audio-video recording‟, „WhatsApp Chatting‟ etc. The case was filed on 13.06.2019. The matter was mentioned stating the urgency that, Notice given by Police for attending P. S. is without following due process of law, against the statutory provision and against the settled position of law by the Hon‟ble High Court and the Supreme Court. In spite of being serious threat to the personal liberty of the Petitioners, especially to the innocent senior citizen who are Parents of the Petitioner, but Justice Ranjit More finds no urgency in this case and matter is posted for next hearing on date 28.11.2020. On the contrary in the case of Ratan Tata, in Criminal Writ Petition No.
1238 of 2019 the issue was only regarding order of Issue of Process and already the lower court proceeding was stayed by Justice Bhatkar vide order dated 18th March, 2019. There was no such immediate threat to life and liberty of Ratan Tata. But the same Bench headed by Judge Ranjit More vide order dated 18th April, 2019 placed the matter on „High on Board‟ and on date 11th June, 2019 heard the case and finally decided the case vide order dated 22nd July, 2019 for the so called urgency best known to the Justice Ranjit More.
8. The second glaring example of discrimination of common, poor citizens and giving luxury, favour to rich people by Justice Ranjit More is the case of 300 employees who have put their sincere efforts and passed written examination, physical test and even medical test as required for recruitment in the „D‟ Group posts in Indian Railway. However, appointment of all these candidates is cancelled by the Railway and they have been deprived from the employment in the Indian Railway. They filed W. P. No. 7830 of 2017 in the Bombay High Court on 05.05.2017. In same matter the cases of other employees in other High Court and in Supreme Court were decided within 3 months and the said employees joined the job. There is a serious question of bread and butter of their family. But Justice Ranjit More since last many months had never kept the matter either on supplementary Board or High - On – Board. The preceipe for urgent circulation was rejected without any reason. To the contrary, the same Judge in a case of E - Cigarette W.P. No. 3690/2019 which was filed on 17th July, 2019 took the matter with urgency on 26th July, 2019 and then directed to place the matter „High on Board‟. Then vide order dated 30th July, 2019 directed to place the matter in supplementary board on 2nd August, 2019. On 2nd August, 2019 after Full Fledge argument the matter was finally allowed in favour of E-cigarette company. 9. Needless to mention here that the petitioner in E-cigarette‟s case and Ratan Tata‟s case were represented by Senior Advocate Amit Desai who was also banned by Bar members social activists in the case of Salman Khan for „out of turn‟ hearing of appeal against conviction. The glaring illegality is that Salman Khan was convicted on 6th May, 2015 Appeal heard and finally decided on 10th December, 2015 means within 7 months when salman Khan was on bail. There was no urgency to hear the appeal. To the contrary, Shri Gopal Shetye who was convicted on year 2010 was behind bars and not allowed to attend death rituals of his father and his appeal was heard by Bombay High Court on 10th June, 2015 i.e. after 5 years. The shocking part is that said Gopal Shetye who was in jail for 5 years was found to be innocent by the Bombay High Court observing that he was different person. This shows that how the fundamentals rights guaranteed under Article 14 of the Constitution of poor and common citizens are being violated by the High Court and the „Rich and Mighty‟ are enjoying the luxury of the Courts. Rightly said by the great jurist that „Law rules the poor And rich rules the Law‟. Hence the very foundation of our constitutional mandate is being abused and damaged by some elements like Justice Ranjit More. That, the inaction on the part of Chief Justice of Bombay High Court speaks a a lot. The act of commission, omission and insensitiveness and undue favour to Rich people and discrimination, unequal treatment to poor people, general advocates is lowering the majesty and dignity of Hon‟ble Bombay High Court which needs to be checked urgently and with stern hands........
It has been observed that advocates practising at High courts are elevated in same High Court as Judges. Due to this they cannot ignore their old friends and allow circulations ie urgent hearings of their matters. The Corporate or rich people appoint advocates as per the relationship with judge . They search that which advocate has good reputation towards which court. Using this goodwill the rich people appointing their counsel by paying premium to get early justice . This trick has 100% accuracy and they get speedy justice in courts bye passing poor litigants. If the newly appointed Judges are posted to non home location then such injustice can be stopped. Due to posting in home location supreme court rulings have no effect. Any how Justice Ranjit More is known for fast moving board in court hours. At High Court every judge have own parameters for circulation.
