Exide is too busy to settle

By Abhijit Menon-Sen <>

Exide's lawyer, who had asked for an extra two weeks at the last hearing, today asked for another three weeks because the Exide head office in Kolkata has not yet approved my offer for settlement.

The forum members took a dim view of this delay, and grilled him a bit, upon which he promptly changed his story and claimed that my offer was unreasonable, so he didn't know yet if it was possible to settle or not. They finally agreed to give him a last chance at reaching a settlement.

Really final hearing in April.
