Legal fraternity happy with CM

DHARWAD: The legal fraternity in north Karnataka is elated over the initiative taken by chief minister B S Yeddyurappa in convincing the central government of the need to convert high court Circuit Benches in Dharwad and Gulbarga into permanent benches.

Yeddyurappa, in a letter to Union law minister M Veerappa Moily, has urged to take up the matter with higher echelons in judiciary. President of High Court Circuit Bench Advocates’ Association, B D Hiremath, told `The Times of India’ on Wednesday that the CM’s request to appoint 15 more judges to high court was laudable. Hiremath recalled that advocates in north Karnataka had been fighting for the establishment of high court’s permanent Bench in the region to ensure dispensation of speedy justice “but had to reconcile and agree for the Circuit Benches”.
