Angry Supreme Court cites Charles Dickens in Bhopal gas case
Well, it’s Jarndyce and Jarndyce, but the idea still works:
The Bench cited a Charles Dickens novel where a reference is made to a civil dispute involving two families, Jarndis Vs Jarndis that dragged on for over a century.
“In that case, the matter dragged on for 100 years, several generations had died. The descendants, the advocates and the judges were not aware what was the case about but they were fighting it. India is also becoming like that. Cases keep dragging,” the apex court said.
