Lawyers' protests bring court proceedings to a halt in Karnataka”

The Karnataka lawyers have made a decision to discontinue the court work for one day on Wednesday as a mark of objection. The second issue is there are only 24 working judges in Karnataka High Court.

The Supreme Court collegium had unanimously taken the decision to transfer former Karnataka high court judge Jayant Patel to the Allahabad high court, sources said on Tuesday.

Only litigants were present in the court halls and their cases had to be adjourned due to the absence of advocates. "Collegium has become incompetent. We want to put an end to this", said Y R Sadshiva Reddy, Deputy Secretary, State advocates association.

In their resolution, the KSBC had asked the advocates to abstain from appearing in their respective courts on Wednesday, October 4,2017, as a mark of "protest" and to vindicate the independence of judiciary and also to restore the faith in the system in the light of NJAC verdict having sought for transparency in collegium, appointment of judges independence of judiciary. Meanwhile, the Advocates Association of Bengaluru has also supported the call given by KSBC. "It has been chose to address a strong protest letter to His Excellency President of Indian, Collegium of the Supreme Court, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Law minister not to cause any injustice/ discrimination in the matter of election to the higher post of the judiciary". The senior judge was the Acting Chief Justice of the Gujarat High Court prior to his transfer to Karnataka.

Justice Patel was transferred to Allahabad High Court when he was set to be elevated which further led to his resignation.

Justice Patel had shot into the limelight when he, as a Gujarat high court judge in November 2011, ordered a CBI probe against public officials involved in the fake encounter of Ishrat Jahan and three others.
