New Delhi, Apr 16 (PTI) A Delhi High Court judge on Friday said lawyers 'need to be a bit more conservative' while filing applications in the prevailing situation where several judges and staff of the high court are down with COVID-19.

Justice Prathiba M Singh said filing of applications for urgent hearing when there was no urgency in a matter was not fair to the judges or the registry staff.

'Please be a bit more considerate towards the judges and the staff of the high court which is facing a trying time with so many people being down with COVID,' the judge said.

The judge's remarks came while hearing a matter in which an application was filed for urgent hearing though there was no urgency in it. PTI HMP RKS RKS
