    It is your choice whether you should provide information about the case in the high court to media. Sometimes, the courts do not like information being provided to media to gain publicity. In such cases, sometimes, the court may think as if you have filed writ petition merely with the intention of gaining publicity. And, if the writ petition is on weak grounds (and if it is more likely to fail), then unnecessary publicity in media may be defamatory to the opposite party.

    In any case, it is your call whether to share it with media. You should do it considering pros and cons.
