'Abuse Of Process, Frivolous Litigation' : Supreme Court Affirms Cost Of Rs 5 Lakhs Imposed On Litigant

Read Judgment

Criticising the filing of numerous proceedings before the tiers of forums upto the Supreme Court itself and the deliberate non-disclosure of absolutely relevant facts, the Apex Court went on to record that it was initially persuaded to initiate contempt proceedings against the Petitioner, but it is not doing so purely due to the age of the Petitioner as she is a lady of 78 years of age.

The bench of  Justices C.T. Ravikumar and Sudhanshu Dhulia was hearing the SLP against the June 13 decision of the Bombay High Court dismissing the petitioner's appeal with a cost of Rs. 5 lakhs.
