Party disputes on the Supreme Council were not the only destabilizing legacy of Lord North’s Regulating Act of 1773. The act also created a new royal court of justice in Calcutta, ‘the Supreme Court of Judicature at Fort William in Bengal’, and the early history of the court was marked by bitter struggles between the judges and the Company government.
