Orissa High Court Bar Association resumes court work today
Cuttack: The Orissa High Court Bar Association resumed the court work here in Odisha on Monday, informed Bar Association President Gopal Krushna Mohanty.
The development comes after the full Bench of the High Court reserved the hearing of a case of contempt against the Bar association in connection to their continuous strike, he said.
The High Court Bar Association also submitted an affidavit.
The court however will hear the case against other 67 bar associations of the state over the contempt proceeding on November 19.
In Odisha, the lawyers first went on strike in April this year, when the Orissa High Court Bar Association passed a resolution registering its protest against certain recommendations made by the High Court Collegium for elevation to the High Court.
Last month, the Orissa High Court Bar Association resolved to boycott the courts of the High Court Collegium judges after the Supreme Court Collegium recommended the appointments of Bibhu Prasad Routray and Sanjeeb Kumar Panigrahi as judges of the Orissa High Court.
