Recently, the Supreme Court came before a case which was challenging the order passed by the Bombay High Court and the Court found that the order passed by the Bombay High Court was unintelligible and it could not understand. In a curt but strongly worded order, the Supreme Court has asked the Bombay High Court to pass an order which is comprehensible and can be understood by the Court.
A Bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose noted that the order of the Bombay High Court which was under challenge was unintelligible and the Supreme Court could not understand what has been decided by the High Court.
“On perusal of the impugned order, we find it is unintelligible and we could not decipher what has been decided by the High Court,” the Bench said.
It, therefore, set aside the order passed by the Bombay High Court and remitted the matter back to High Court.
The Supreme Court also requested the High Court to pass an order which can be understood.
“We, accordingly, set aside the order and remit the matter to the High Court. We request the High Court to pass an order which we can understand,” the Bench said.
In a similar case, in 2017, the Supreme Court Bench of Justices Madan B. Lokur and Deepak Gupta had set aside a judgment of the Himachal Pradesh High Court because of the convoluted English used in the judgment.
