Consumer Court: waiting for judgement
By Abhijit Menon-Sen <firstname.lastname@example.org>
My date for oral arguments in the
case against Exide was
the 10th of November (yesterday), which was a national holiday. I called
the consumer forum to find the revised date, and they asked me to appear
Exide was represented by the same chap, with
the same story: their
lawyer was ill and could not attend. I had expected them to try to file
written arguments, but they didn't have any. Fortunately, the two judges
present were not inclined to postpone matters further. They asked me to
state my case, which I did; and they put it up for judgement.
Now I have to wait for the judgement to reach me by post.
