Lawyers getting unemployed with disposal?

Adverse effects of speedy justice.

Andhra Pradesh’s Guntur district in the last days of the Civil Court Judge J. A. V. V. Satyanarayana Murthy, recorded 111 cases disposed of in a day. But he incurred displeasure of a section of lawyers.

Judge is very happy with the work of common people, but a group of lawyers in Mangalagiri City Civil Court has upset him. Lawyers told him that if the decision made at this speed, they [lawyers] will become unemployed. (source: Jagran – Yahoo! India – National:: General News.)

Now if a lawyer is to be paid per date basis, he need to have a really lucrative practice to sacrifice his interest. Further where was the application of mind? 111 cases in a day means that he applied no mind at all to each case.
