MUMBAI: A two-judge bench of the Bombay high court on Wednesday set aside an order of a single-judge bench that had last week restrained publishers and distributors of ‘An Incomplete Life’— an autobiography of Vijaypat Singhania, the chairperson emeritus of Raymond Group, from its printing, sale and distribution.
The bench granting relief to Pan Macmillan Publishing India Pvt Ltd, observed that the single judge while putting a hold on sale of the book was under an “erroneous impression” of there being an existing stay.
The publisher had filed an appeal to challenge the interim November 4 order in a contempt petition filed by Raymond Ltd against Singhania in a pending dispute. The company had alleged that the book was published despite a stay by a district court and was also offered for sale through Amazon India. It hence, sought a stay on printing and sale, of both digital and physical copies.
