Dear learned members,
I would appreciate your help in following matter.
Hon'ble Judge at City Civil court has granted generous 4 adjournments covering period of 7 months to submit the evidences.
When it came to Defendant, Hon'ble Judge started giving dates (3 adjournments) at every 10 days. Though, Defendant requested for a period of 1 month to collect certified copies from the another court and draft affidavit, which was rejected.. (total time allowed to Defendant 35 - 40 days)
Hon'ble Judge has closed the evidence stage with out Defendant's evidence being submitted.
It is highly likely that Defendant's motion will also be rejected.
Some time before, there was a judgment of Bombay High Court and/or Supreme Court which instructed that trial court should allow same time and provide equal opportunity to both the parties
