The dissident MLAs had moved the court on Friday amid the infighting in the state unit of the Congress, as Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot
and his now sacked deputy Pilot tussled for power.
Counsel for the speaker Abhishek Singhvi on Monday argued that the petition was premature as a decision was yet to be taken on disqualifying the MLAs from the House.
There is no scope for interference by a court over the show-cause notices issued by the speaker, he had said.
The speaker is supreme as far as the legislative assembly is concerned and the notices have been issued within the purview of the speaker's power, Singhvi had said.

A lawyer appearing for the speaker had told reporters that the chief justice asked is the speaker bound to issue a notice on a petition seeking disqualification of such nature without recording any reason.
Singhvi had argued that there was no requirement to record reasons as it was merely a show-cause notice.
The notices to the MLAs were served after the party complained to the speaker that the lawmakers had defied a whip to attend two CLP meetings last week on Monday and Tuesday.
The Pilot camp, however, argues that a party whip applies only when the assembly is in session.
In its complaint to the speaker, the Congress had sought action against Pilot and the other dissidents under paragraph 2(1)(a) of the 10th Schedule of the Constitution.
The provision disqualifies MLAs if they "voluntarily" give up the membership of the party that they represent in the House.
Pilot was sacked as the Rajasthan deputy chief minister and the president of the state Congress unit after he rebelled against Gehlot.
