SC restrains warring couple from filing more cases as they have 67 of it already


New Delhi, Sep 17: The Supreme Court has restrained an estranged couple from Bengaluru from filing any new case against each other since they already have 67 cases between them over the last seven years of litigation.

The bench headed by Justice Kurian Joseph said, "We restrain both from instituting any fresh litigation in relation to the pending disputes, be it criminal or civil against each other or the members of their family or against the school where the child is now studying, or advocates on either side, without express permission from the High Court."
