Madras High Court Advocates’ Association (MHCAA) at its extraordinary general body meeting on Monday, appealed to the Collegium of the Supreme Court to reconsider its decision to transfer the present Chief Justice of the Madras High Court, Vijaya K Tahilramani to Meghalaya High Court.
The MHCAA, in its resolution, also appealed to Chief Justice of Madras High Court, Justice Tahilramani, to reconsider and withdraw her resignation.
The lawyers’ body further appealed to President Ram Nath Kovind and the Centre to not accept her resignation and also the Supreme Court collegium’s decision of recommending her transfer.
Chief Justice VK Tahilramani, who has tendered her resignation to President Ram Nath Kovind, did not preside over court proceedings on Monday.
The high court registry in a notification said all cases, which are to be heard by the first bench, were posted before the second bench headed by Justice Vineet Kothari.
Days after the Supreme Court Collegium declined her request for reconsideration of transfer to Meghalaya, Chief Justice Tahilramani tendered her resignation to the President and sent a copy of it to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on September 6.
Meanwhile, advocates, including NGR Prasad had sent a letter to the CJI to reconsider their decision to transfer Justice Tahilramani out of Chennai.
On August 28, the Collegium had recommended Justice Tahilramani’s transfer to Meghalaya.
