Madras High Court will see its fifth Acting Chief Justice in 3 and a half months if Justice S Muralidhar transfer is not cleared soon

At the time of their retirement, both Justices Bhandari and Duraiswamy had expressed hope that new judges will be appointed to the High Court soon. Justice Bhandari had said that the shortage of judicial officers was the primary reason for the rising pendency of cases. 

In fact, between January this year and now, eight judges of the Madras High Court have retired from service.

The series of retirements began with Justice Pushpa Sathyanarayana attaining superannuation on February 27 this year. She was followed by Justices V Parthiban, V Bharathidasan, R Pongiappan, M Govindaraj, and K Kalyanasundaram on April 23, May 6, May 11, May 18, and May 26, respectively.

Justice Bhandari retired on September 13 this year and Justice Duraiswamy retired on September 22 this year.
