Madurai, Apr 1 (PTI) The Madras High Court has asked its officials not to entertain the petitions listing the Union or state ministers or the MPs and the MLAs as respondents without the permission of its chief justice.
The Madurai bench of the high court issued the instruction recently for the officials of both its principal bench at Chennai and its local bench.
Registrar (Judicial) P Rajamanickam issued the circular to this effect to the appeal examiners and heads of the filing sections of the registry on a directive by the chief justice.
It said the appeal examiners and heads of the filing sections “are hereby directed to submit the entire papers at the temporary numbering stage, in respect of cases wherein MLAs, MPs and sitting ministers of the state and the central governments are parties before the chief justice for his approval and only after such approval, the same may be numbered.”
