As observed in earlier order, the scheme has to be a fair and transparent scheme, considering the fact that the amount of Rs 5 crore transferred by the government constitutes public money. Additional Advocate General (AAG) is also directed to address the court on the nature of the scheme.” The direction followed after Advocate Anil Kumar appearing for the Advocates Association of Bengaluru raised objections to the scheme. He said “The KSBC circular states that only male advocates are entitled for the amounts. Further, those who are enrolled before 1/01/2010 and should have not crossed the age of 40 years are eligible. They are targeting the age group of 35-40 years. No junior advocate is entitled for the relief. On the previous date of hearing the court had said the scheme must be presented to the court, they have not followed the orders. Thus the scheme is faulty.” Advocate Nataraj G appearing for the KSBC said “On earlier occasion, framed scheme who enrolled subsequent to 1/01/2010. We already paid an amount of Rs 5,000. After this grant, we are streamling those advocates who were enrolled prior to 1/01/2010. Since advocates registered after 1/01/2010, have already got financial assistance therefore this scheme is being framed. Since we are calling upon the advocates register before January 1, 2010, a large number of advocates will make applications.” He submitted that he would place the scheme on record of the court for further consideration. Advocate Chetan Munnoli appearing for the Advocates Association of High Court at Dharwad bench informed the court that “Till now Rs 40,000 has been collected by the association. Many seniors have paid salaries to their clerks during the pandemic, in that view they have not contributed to this cause. However, we will still try to collect some more amount and help the clerks.” The bench in its order said “As observed earlier more amount will have to be collected by the association. Counsel for advocates clerks association at dharwad has stated that he will submit a list of advocate clerks who are not attached to any particular lawyers and have received remuneration from advocates so that those clerks who were paid remuneration will be submitted. After receiving the list of clerks who badly need assistance the association should distribute the amount in a fair and transparent manner.” The state government also informed the court that it has disposed of the representations made by the Belgavi bar association and the Advocates Association at Dharwad. They have been directed to approach the state bar council for seeking financial assistance to its members. It has also not sanctioned a separate amount for Advocates’s clerks and has directed the bar council to set apart some amount for needy advocates clerks, out of Rs 5 crore granted for the benefit of Advocates. The bench said “State to place on record the decision taken to not grant separate amounts to advocate’s clerks and decisions taken on representations made by Bar associations, so that the court can examine whether the state has given any reasons.” The court has now posted the matter seeking financial assistance for needy advocate’s clerks for further hearing on September 7.

Fernandez has 13 Ks, pitches Miami by Pirates 3-2

first_imgMiami Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton, right, reaches second base on double as Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Neil Walker (18) awaits the throw during the first inning of a baseball game in Miami, Sunday, July 28, 2013. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)MIAMI (AP) – The Pittsburgh Pirates managed only one win against the team with the NL’s worst record.They hope to fare better versus the team they’re chasing in the division.Gerrit Cole was outpitched Sunday in an all-rookie duel against Jose Fernandez, and Pittsburgh lost to the Miami Marlins 3-2.The Pirates went 1-2 in the series and 5-5 on a three-city trip, and they now head home for a five-game set against the St. Louis Cardinals, who lead the NL Central with the best record in the majors.“I think the Cardinal series has been on a lot of the fans’ dockets for some time now,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “I anticipate seeing a very faithful Pirate crowd there Monday.”The Pirates have the second-best record in the NL, but they’ve lost 12 of their past 22 games, and Fernandez (7-5) wasn’t inclined to help them get going again.The 20-year-old All-Star had a team rookie record 13 strikeouts, and allowed five hits and two runs in eight innings. He walked none and threw 97 pitches, 74 for strikes.Cole (5-4) was nearly as good. He allowed three runs and struck out eight in seven innings, but Giancarlo Stanton put the Marlins ahead to stay in the sixth with his 13th home run.“The home run was a bad pitch, and he deposited it like he should,” Cole said. “That pitch was really inexcusable there in a tie ballgame.”Stanton also doubled, walked and scored twice for the Marlins, who had six hits.Steve Cishek gave up a single and a walk in the ninth, but retired Garrett Jones on a grounder for the final out to earn his 22nd save in 24 chances.Fernandez’s strikeout total broke the Marlins’ rookie record of 12 held by Josh Beckett. He struck out every player in the starting lineup, and he fanned the side in the third and fifth innings.“This was kind of a statement game for him, where he knew he was going up against another solid pitcher, and he wanted to outdo him,” Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.Like Fernandez, Cole was a first-round draft pick in 2011. He has allowed less than four runs in all nine starts.“He’s a great pitcher,” Fernandez said. “His stuff is good. I saw it hitting, and I didn’t like it.”Ditto regarding Fernandez, Cole said.“When you go up against a guy like him, you feed off each other,” Cole said. “He goes out and strikes out the side, and I’m going to out there and try to do the same thing. You love that competition and you want the best out of the other person. He was better today.”Fernandez improved to 5-2 with a 1.87 ERA over his past 10 starts, and lowered his ERA for the season to 2.71. When his face was shown on the video board before the ninth inning, the crowd of 24,207 roared, and he waved his cap from the dugout.“That was an impressive outing by him,” Hurdle said, “and an impressive outing for our guy.”The Pirates scored their only runs in the second inning. Pedro Alvarez led off with a single and came home on Russell Martin’s double. Martin stole third and scored on a two-out single by Clint Barmes.Miami made it 2-all in the fourth when Stanton walked, Logan Morrison singled, Ed Lucas singled home a run and Donovan Solano hit a sacrifice fly.Notes: Pirates C Michael McKenry, who tweaked his left knee Saturday, was awaiting results of a doctor’s evaluation. C Russell Martin was back in the lineup after suffering a minor injury to his left knee Friday. … Pittsburgh RF Jose Tabata started after being held out of the starting lineup for three games because of a sore right forearm. … Pirates CF Andrew McCutchen was given a rest. He pinch-hit in the eighth and popped out.last_img read more
