Cuttack, Jan 3: The advocates can use ‘sir’ instead of using ‘My lord’, ‘Your lordship’, ‘Your honour’ while addressing to the judges, said a bench consisting of Orissa High Court Chief Justice S. Muralidhar and Justice R.K. Pattnaik.

“All Counsel and parties-in-person are requested to try and avoid addressing the judges of this bench as ‘My Lord’, ‘Your Lordship’, ‘Your Honour’ or with the prefix Hon’ble”, said the bench.

Worth mentioning, former Chief Justice Of India Sharad Arvind Bobde had earlier spoken out against the use of the word “Your Honour”.
