News: “I will not permit forum shopping”, said Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud last week to a litigant appearing before him recently.
What is Forum Shopping?
Forum shopping refers to the practice of litigants or lawyers deliberately selecting a particular judge or court where they believe the judgment will be more favourable to their case. This practice involves choosing a court that is likely to provide the most favourable outcome, rather than following the standard legal process.
It circumvents the normal course of justice and can lead to an imbalance in the workload of courts.
The Supreme Court has condemned the practice and said it has no sanction in law and must be discouraged.
It gives unfair advantage to one party and involves manipulating legal system.
