“All submissions should not exceed 15 pages,” she added but adjourned the court to allow the Judges to deliberate on further requested by lawyers.

The attorneys requested to be allowed to serve and submit files within 15 rather than 10 days.

 

They also urged the court to allow the maximum number of pages to be increased to 40 rather than 15.

 

Earlier on the court allowed the inclusion of five international experts into the case as amicus curiae. The five are Richard Albert (US), Yaniv Roznai (Israel), Rosalind Dixon (Australia), David E. Landau (US) and Gautam Bhatia (India).

 

Pro-BBI teams opposed the application of the five professors arguing that they were not included in the cases at the High Court and Court of Appeal. The lawyers raised concerns about the motive of the legal experts who are believed to be against the BBI initiative.
