Bangalore: As the Karnataka High Court reopened after the Dussehra vacation, lawyers wondered whether the Chief Justice would turn up in court, a day after the Advocate General urged him to do so.
The Karnataka High court was abuzz on Monday morning over the concern, but at 10.30 am sharp, Justice Dinakaran did come into court. He heard and adjourned 27 cases in less than 30 minutes and left the court for the day.
But that did not go down well with a section of lawyers, who had passed a resolution in September asking Justice Dinakaran, who faces allegations of corruption, not to attend court.
"We have unanimously decided to hold an emergency general body meeting on the 7th of October at 1.45 pm on the court premises," said Putte Gowda, president, Bangalore Advocate Association.
While Wednesday's meeting will decide future course of action, at least one constitutional authority is confident that there will be no move that will create a judicial crisis.
"The Advocates Association Bangalore is a very responsible body. It will take appropriate decision to uphold the dignity and majesty of the judiciary," said K M Nataraj, Joint Advocate General, Karnataka.
