🍁 In Supreme Court, your first argument should be the argument which you consider your best argument.
🍁 I remember an incident. At that time, the then Justice A. M. Ahmadi was presiding in court No. 2. I had engaged Senior Advocate S. K. Dholakia to argue a case.
🍁 The case did not have any merit. The Judge smiled at counsel and asked him to make his best argument.
🍁 Senior Counsel made an argument which he considered the best possible argument in the case. But it was not accepted by the court.
🍁 I prompted the Senior Counsel to make a second argument which was considered important as per view of my client.
🍁 Senior counsel tried to make second argument, but the judge smiled and said, you have already made the argument which was the best argument according to you…..
🍁 Second “less than best” argument was not allowed to be made.
