SC stays Madras HC order on bar association bye-laws
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday stayed
a High Court judgement amending the bye-laws governing the
Madras High Court Advocates Association.
A vacation bench of Justices G S Singhvi and C K
Prasad while staying the amendments issued notices to the
association`s president and other office bearers on a
petition filed by advocate Sudha.
The apex court while issuing the notice wondered how
the High Court could assume the power of framing bye-laws for
The High Court has approved the bye-laws for the
association on April 16 by which it was made mandatory for
only "resident members" practising within the limits of the
Chennai Corporation to be its members; besides fixing a
minimum practice period for an advocate to become office
bearer of the association.
The petition has questioned the power of the High
Court to pass such an order on the ground that it imposed
"unreasonable restrictions" on the association which was an
independent welfare body of advocates.
