The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled out any possibility for the establishment of a permanent bench of the Orissa High Court in Sambalpur or at any other district in the State.
A bench comprising Justices SK Kaul and Abhay S Oka passed the order while hearing a plea relating to protests by lawyers in the State demanding a permanent High Court bench in Sambalpur district.
The apex court observed that the passage of time and the use of technology has made the demands obsolete. “The use of technology is quite widespread now and monitored by the Orissa High Court. No need for an additional bench exists,” the bench said.
Coming down heavily on the protesting lawyers, the court said, “There is no hope for the formation of a bench. Even if there was some possibility, that is lost now with their conduct.”
