Court lets BJP, Jethmalani end suit on his expulsion
A Delhi court on Friday allowed a joint application of noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to end a pending suit relating to the former’s expulsion from the party. Jethmalani had filed the suit against the BJP for expelling him in 2013. He had also sought ~50 lakh in damages. Additional district judge Sumit Dass disposed of the suit considering the settlement agreement between BJP and 95-year-old Jethmalani. “Now nothing survives in the suit. The suit is disposed of,” the judge said.
