Remarks against district judge expunged

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, MARCH 1. The Karnataka High Court has expunged the remarks made by a single Judge against the former District and Sessions Judge of Shimoga, Ratnakala.

The District and Sessions Judge had heard a matter in which three persons had come in appeal in a conspiracy case. There were two appeals in the case and the judge had passed orders on them.

Justice Veerabhadraiah had upheld the orders but had passed remarks against the District and Sessions Judge.

He had said the manner in which the appeals had been disposed of without being clubbed was dissatisfying.

He had called it sheer negligence and said it showed dereliction of duty amounting to judicial impropriety.

He had ordered that a copy of the judgment be kept in her confidential record (CR). Ratnakala, who is now the Presiding Officer of the Principal Labour Court, had appealed to the High Court and urged it to expunge the remarks.

A Division Bench comprising Justice S.R. Bannurmath and Justice A.C. Kabbin expunged the remarks made against Ratnakala.
