Two more judges for Madurai
Madurai: The Madurai bench of Madras High
court will get two more judges next month to take its strength to 14, according to Chief Justice of Madras High Court M Yusuf Eqbal.
Participating at a hurriedly convened meeting of the Bench and Bar here yesterday, he told them he was unable to depute more judges for want of bungalows in the court complex.
Only 12 court halls and 12 bungalows for judges were
built when the Bench was inaugurated in July 2004. Since 2007,
the court has been repeatedly requesting the government for
funds to construct more number court buildings and bungalows.
A proposal was also sent to build additional chambers for
lawyers. Four rooms in the administrative block were converted
into court halls. For want of bungalows, some judges had to stay in the VIP guest house.
Lawyers present at the meet said the CJ had assured them he
would consider their other grievances with regard to recommending the names of lawyers practicing in the Bench for
elevation to the post of judges.
