Only AoRs can mention cases for out-of-turn hearing: SC

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today put an end to the old practice of allowing senior lawyers to mention cases seeking their out-of-turn listing and hearing.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra also made clear that now onwards only Advocates-on-Record (AoR) would be authorised to mention cases for out-of-turn hearing.

Yesterday, the bench which also comprise Justices Amitava Roy and A M Khanwilkar had expressed annoyance after a lawyer complained that while his senior colleagues were being allowed to mention matters for urgent hearing, junior members of the bar were denied such opportunities.

The court had witnessed a very noisy scene yesterday when some lawyers were denied permission to mention cases.
