Dive In


We feel instead of all these proceedings, do you want a dialogue or want a mediation kind of a thing?

That’s the question asked by Chief Justice NV Ramana during the ongoing legal duel between Amazon and Future Retail (explained here)—which has been dragged through the courts for 18 months. The answer was a resounding ‘yes’ from both sides. The surprise offer came from Amazon whose counsel said this “whirlpool” of disputes had carried on too long. The two sides have until March 15 to explore a settlement.
