The DHCBA has released a list of advocates who will act as proxy counsel tomorrow.
The Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) has passed a resolution requesting its members to abstain from work tomorrow, in protest against the Collegium's recommendation to transfer Justice S Muralidhar to the Punjab & Haryana High Court.
In the resolution passed today, the DHCBA has expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" at the decision to recommend the transfer "one of the finest judges to have adorned the Bench".
The resolution states,
"Such transfers are not only detrimental to our noble institution, but also tend to erode and dislodge the faith of the common litigant in the justice dispensation system. Such transfers also impede free and fair delivery of justice by the Hon'ble Bench."
The DHCBA goes on to urge the Supreme Court Collegium to recall its recommendation to transfer Justice Muralidhar from Delhi to Punjab.
Stating that the majesty of the revered institution is at stake, DHCBA has thus called upon its members to abstain from work on February 20.
Consequently, the DHCBA has released a list of Advocates who shall act as proxy counsel before all the benches of the High Court.
"The aforementioned proxy counsels are requested to be present in their respective courts by 10.00 a.m. positively.If any of the proxy counsel is not available, then it is requested that they should inform any other colleague to appear as proxy on their behalf", the Notice appointing proxy counsel reads.
