'Will not happen in last year...': CJI DY Chandrachud loses calm in court

Justice Chandrachud once again upheld the courtroom decorum as he reprimanded a lawyer during the listing of a petition on January 3.

'Will not happen in last year...': CJI DY Chandrachud loses calm in court

Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud issued a warning to a lawyer, who engaged in a heated argument with him over the listing of a petition, on January 3.

Expressing his displeasure with the lawyer's 'tone', the CJI interrupted and cautioned him against attempts to intimidate the court.

Asking him to lower his voice, the CJI said, "You're arguing before the first court of the Supreme Court of India; lower your pitch, otherwise, I will have you removed from the Court".

Admonishing him, CJI also questioned the lawyer's usual practice: "Where do you normally appear? Is this the way you shout at judges every time?"

He said, "If you think you can browbeat us by raising your voice, you're mistaken. It has not happened in 23 years; it will not happen in the last year of my career."

The advocate promptly apologized and altered his approach as the petition proceedings resumed.

This wasn't the first instance when Justice Chandrachud upheld the courtroom decorum by reprimanding the lawyer.

Earlier, he rebuked a lawyer for using a mobile phone and, in March last year, he slammed a senior advocate for urging expedited consideration of a case.
