Delhi High Court Transfers Case Apprehending Judicial Bias

Ordering the transfer of a case, in a petition by a woman, seeking transfer of proceedings from the court of Principal Judge of Family Court, Saket; where the Judge made several scathing remarks against the Petitioner, the Delhi High Court (‘DHC’) observed that: “The observations by the Court must not have the potential to sully the person or character of a litigant. The language of the judgment must necessarily be tempered by restraint and moderation. A judgment of a court of law cannot become a blistering diatribe against a party or its cause.
