A two-judge bench delivered a split verdict. The matter will now be heard by a third judge.
A two-judge bench — Chief Justice of Madras HC Indira Banerjee and Justice M Sundar — of the Madras High Court delivered a split verdict in the case against 18 AIADMK MLAs, disqualifying them for "anti-party activities". The matter will now be heard by a third judge. The court, as of yet, has ordered that no floor test or by-polls can be conducted. The 18 MLAs were disqualified by speaker P Dhanapal under the anti-defection law in September last year. The MLAs were close to VK Sasikala and had written to the governor asking him to remove Palaniswami as the CM, an act that saw them get suspended.
