SC denies nod to Amazon to file written note in case filed by Future Retail

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Tuesday did not allow Amazon to file written submission in a case related to Future Retail’s plea for nod to proceed with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) permission of going ahead with Rs 24,731 crore merger deal with Reliance Retail.
A bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana, which had reserved its order on February 3, was irked over the alleged delayed request of the US-based e-commerce major to file the written note in the case and said that it appeared to be a “luxurious litigation”.
You want to complicate the matters. It is fine. You want to drag on, continue these hearings… If I allow you, then I will have to allow them (FRL) also. I do not understand what this practice is. If that day (February 3) you would have asked then it would have been a different story, said the CJI.
It is just to assist the court, the lawyer said.
The bench rejected the submissions saying that the argument seemed to be that the oral submissions have to be given in writing as well.
It seems you think we don’t have the ability to understand the oral submissions. After reserving the order, now after five days you again started reopening… I think it’s better to not list these matters at all. It is a luxurious litigation it appears, the CJI said.
