Jay Shah Seeks Postponement in Hearing on Gag Order Against The Wire

The civil court has directed Jay Shah’s lawyers to be present on December 13.

New Delhi: On December 12, a date fixed upon his own request, Jay Shah’s lawyers sought further time before the Ahmedabad civil court, which as per the High Court deadline is to decide the matter of injunction within 30 days whether or not any response is filed for a party.

No specific reason was given for requiring more time to respond to The Wire’s written contentions filed on December 4th.

The Wire opposed the delay, citing the law, the High Court deadline and the fact that it was only on Shah’s own request that December 12 was given to start with.  The civil court then directed Jay Shah’s lawyers to be present on December 13.
