Please apologize me as I posted this question under a wrong Sub-category on this forum.
My question falls under section 9 of HMA sub-category.
I have seen 8 dates being passed over by the trial judge for "framing the issues" spanning a period of more than six months.
I am surprised, although I do not have a right to question the Judge, how can he ignore so many dates only to frame the issues for the petition under section 9 HMA pending before him.
Is there any limit by law (in terms of the number of dates a Judge can skip over) within which he has to dispose off the question (framing the issues) in-hand?
Please remember section 21 HMA provides for a speedy trial to be completed within six months under the HMA.
