High Court cannot permit filing of new documents after hearing arguments and reserving judgement

Standard

It has been found that in many cases, after hearing arguments, Judge reserves judgements and permits counsels to file written submissions.

Sometimes, this system is misused and counsels file new facts, new evidence, which is unfair to other parties.
