Bombay hc - writ petition (civil) - case suddenly disposed!!

bombay hc - writ petition (civil) - case disposed!!!


is it possible for a writ petition to get "disposed" at 'circulation' stage itself? and also there is no order being displayed at Bom hc website.




First it went through filing and registration.


Subsequent hearing date was was meant for circulation.

On internet/bombay hc website, our case was being shown as 



stage:'for admistion - circulation'




On that date our lawyer was present there.




After that hearing date our lawyer seems not taking our phone call.


On internet/bombay hc website, our case is NOW being shown as 



stage:'for admistion - circulation'




What does that mean?

Has our writ petition (family court matter) been rejected?


it does not say anything further.

there is no orders whatsoever also (orders/judgment button on webpage shows "No Orders/Judgements Found!!!" message)




How to know whether or not....


our lawyer was present there?

he himself prayed to withdraw the writ petition?

on what reason and how the writ got disposed of?

can it be re-instated if there has been default?

can it be re filed by delay condonation? .. writ was filed after around 110 day lapsed time after impugned order.


bombay high court website does NOT display reasons why/how the writ got disposed!!! 


is it possible to thus reject a writ at circulation stage itself?

The court has the power to dismiss it if it deems fit. However, instead of asking so many questions here, talk to your lawyer as to what had happened there in the court and how the WP was dismissed.

It takes time for the people working on website to update it.  Orders are updated very late generally on websites.  Go and inquire in the court whether any order was made in the WP (without order WP cannot be dismissed), and take the copies of order from the office of Registrar.  Or else like Adv. Archana wisely said, talk to Advocate as to what happened and whether any order was passed in the WP.

On internet/bombay hc website, our case is NOW being shown as 



stage:'for admistion - circulation'


it is clear that your case is being disposed who told your case is dismissed 

disposed means at admission stage only the court judge came to a conclusion and order what you had prayed in the main prayer 


if you see what is in the judgement then only your can answer and also enquire with your lawyer what exactly happened if he is not answering then go to the court and enquire with the filing section
