Following is a report from http://lawetalnews.com:

Lawyers in Orissa are totally at crossroads on the issue of setting up a permanent bench of the High Court in Western Orissa. The lawyers of all the courts in Cuttack, including the tribunals, brought the judicial system to a grinding halt through a strike in protest against the Union Law Minister, Veerappa Moily’s statement last week to set up a permanent bench of the Orissa High Court in Western Orissa. The lawyers of the High Court Bar Association, the lower courts and the tribunals, in a show of solidarity refrained from attending the courts in Cuttack.

On the other hand, protesting the strike by the lawyers at Cuttack, lawyers of Bolangir, in Western Orissa, have given a bandh call on Tuesday dubbing the Union Minister’s decision in favour of the permanent High Court bench in Sambalpur as just and reasonable. The Bolanagir lawyers feel that, the lawyers of Cuttack should not arrogate to themselves the right to hold all privileges unto themselves.

Meanwhile, the lawyers of Deogarh and Boudh, in Western Orissa, have described the attitude of the lawyers of the High Court Bar Association as unfair and hailed the proposal for setting up of the permanent High Court bench in Western Orissa.
