According to the law, can a defendant or Plaintiff change his/her lawyer after certain court proceedings in both civil/criminal cases.
A Court is adjourned and given a certain date for next proceeding.
Now the Plaintiff or Defendant would like to change his/her lawyer giving reasonable reasons for the same. Reasons could be : Personal emergency call for the Lawyer, Lawyer falling sick/unwell etc
Is this allowed in the judiciary? If yes, what are the rules? Who gives the permission grant to either the defendant or plaintiff to change the lawyer? Is it the Judge or panel of Judges?
