Se­nior­ity rules court­room use

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

Lawyers are of the mind that se­nior­ity de­ter­mines who uses court­rooms first.

Ac­cord­ing to a se­nior lawyer, they had noted that se­nior judges used their al­lo­cated court rooms ahead of those ju­nior to them. He said this puts mat­ters be­fore the less se­nior judge on hold for hours while the first hears cases. “I don’t know how those who were sworn in at the same time work, but I have noted that those who have se­nior­ity have first pref­er­ence to a court room,” he said. This was sup­ported by an­other lawyer who said def­er­ence to a judge’s se­nior­ity was prac­tised.
