The legal fraternity in Tamil Nadu protests against the transfer of Justice Tahilramani.
WHEN the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court, Justice V.K. Tahilramani, was transferred to the Meghalaya High Court and she decided to resign, the legal fraternity in Tamil Nadu rose in solidarity. It was felt that the transfer was “arbitrary”.
The rights activist and senior advocate Henry Tiphagne, based in Madurai, said the protest by the lawyers was meant to convey to the collegium that its decision was not acceptable. The Madras High Court Advocates Association president, Mohanakrishnan, told the media that the transfer was an “undemocratic and undignified” decision.
