Desperately romantic judge



March 12, 2022


Defining the intentions of a judgment romantically, Justice Sohail Nasir of the Lahore High Court has dismissed an appeal of a leading car manufacturing company upholding a decision of a consumer court that ordered it to pay compensation to the buyer of a car that caught fire 17 days after the purchase due to a manufacturing defect. Interestingly, the language of this judgement betrayed desperation of a romantic as the judge began his 18-page verdict writing: “For a man, new car ownership is like a first girlfriend who introduced us to the feelings of butterflies in the tummy and Goosebumps across the skin. It is a relationship that can keep you up all night, building castles in the air. But when she is away and not found you miss her like the deserts miss the rain.” The excitingly and alluring judgement emphasised the similarity of the situation with the emotions faced by the consumer who purchased a new car but lost it just after 17 days when it caught fire and was completely burnt due to a defect in the fuse box. Hopefully the heartbreak was limited only to the vehicle. TW
