Dear Sirs, This is regarding a criminal appeal, the petitioner is unnecessarily delaying the matter for several years. The Respondent lawyer has submitted arguments few times, but due to delay tactics and transfer of judges, the matter comes back to starting fresh again.
I am from respondent side, and have paid the lawyer in full and more for the delay. But it is impossible to continue to do this, as opposite party keeps dragging and our lawyer is not pushing for judgment. He is not objecting to the delay tactics also. What is the best way to handle this? I cant make allegations but the opposite party is known to bribe to get their things done.
We tried to submit a memo for speedy hearing but our lawyer refusedd saying it is not allowed, under what provision are you asking for speedy etc. We are not lawyers and definitely do not want to go against his wishes or interrupt him in courtroom but we also wish that he understands our problem. I am tihnking can we submit written arguments and leave it? that way the arguments will be on record and whenever any judge posts for judgment, all points will be there to refer.
its not about fees as we have paid all agreed and more, but its about how to ensure that the cycle doesnt go on. please suggest a way to get out of this cycle. I want to be on good term with our lawyer and also get out of the case.
