Part III Access to Justice – Watching the Supreme Court Article 141 of the Constitution says that the law declared by the Supreme Court is binding on all courts and authorities in the territory of India. Unwillingly Article 141 has now become the thief of Judicial Time. The Laws’ proverbial delays are not because there are too many laws, but because there are just too many reported judgments and orders concerning them. Cashing in on Article 141 every single case—in the Supreme Court and even in the High Courts—is dutifully printed and reported by a variety of competing reporting agencies who want their law reports to sell as widely as possible. The ‘judgement-factory’ has become over-commercialised, and quite a large number of the 30 million cases now pending in various Courts in India can be attributed—at least in part—to this peculiar Indian malady: ‘case-law diarrhoea’. —Fali Nariman
