Hi, you don't worry about long hearing and short hearing it will depend upon the facts of the case and court has discretionary power to reserve the judgment. you don't worry.

Your sources are wrong. Do not rely on hearsay. Hearing in High Courts span over hours. A judge reserves his decision after hearing the lawyers because he needs to apply his legal mind to the facts of the case and then write the judgment, which cannot be done instantly..

time taken for hearing would depend upon facts of each case . you cannot generalise that it would take 5 minutes or an hour . judgment are reserved as judge has to apply his mind and pass reasoned orders .
