Courts should dispose of cases in a speedy manner by responding to petitions as soon as possible, said former Chief Justice of the Karnataka and Kerala High Courts V S Malimath.

He was speaking after inaugurating the Karnataka Administrative Tribunal which was shifted from Indiranagar BDA Complex to Kandaya Bhavan in K G Road on Monday.

He said, “Petitioner approaches the court seeking early justice. If the courts won’t dispose of cases at the earliest, people will lose hope in the judiciary. So it’s very important to hear cases and dispose of them as soon as possible. Advocates should not take unnecessary adjournments as it affects the rural people.” 

“Advocates should also co-operate in the speedy disposal of cases,” he added.

He said there was a shortage of staff in courts in the State, and the State government should take up this problem seriously and fill all the vacancies so that the judiciary functions efficiently.
