The   present   appeal   by   special   leave   calls   in
question   the   legal   propriety   of   the   order   dated   12.12.2017
by which the Civil Judge (Senior Division) at Patiala House
Court,   New   Delhi   in   Title   Suit   No.   C.S.   2603/2017   had
passed   an   order   of   injunction   without   ascribing   any   reason
to   permit   the   respondent   to   cast   his   vote   in   the   election
of   the   Supreme   Court   Bar   Association.     This   Court   on

passed a mandatory order permitting the respondent-
plaintiff   to   cast   his   vote   in   the   election
scheduled today.
We   are   passing   this   order   as   no   reasons   have
been   ascribed   and   the   jurisdiction   of   the   Civil

We   have   been   apprised   that   the   election   is   over.
In view of the aforesaid, the mandatory order passed by the
learned trial Judge has lost its force.  That apart, we are
obliged   to   say   that   the   Court   below   should   not   have   passed
an order of mandatory injunction while the election process
was   on.     We   may   hasten   to   add,   we   have   not   expressed   any
opinion with regard to the maintainability of the suit.  It
is   open   to   the   respondent   to   raise   the   issue   of
maintainability before the trial Court.
The   appeal   is   allowed   to   the   extent   indicated
