It is com­mon sense. No sane in­di­vid­ual would want two dif­fer­ent sets of jury in two dif­fer­ent courts to de­lib­er­ate on the same case at the same time. More­over, if one court is a higher civil au­thor­ity and the other fo­cuses solely on con­sumer is­sues, the lat­ter can­not de­lib­er­ate on a case that is pend­ing with the for­mer. How­ever, some peo­ple, ei­ther in des­per­a­tion for quicker re­lief or with some ma­li­cious in­tent, have tried go­ing the wrong way – the legally un­ac­cept­able way – of fil­ing a com­plaint with a con­sumer fo­rum de­spite the same case be­ing pend­ing/heard in the civil court. In this ar­ti­cle, we share some cases and the judge­ments thereof to clear all doubts that one may have with re­gard to this sub­ject.
