Justice G Chandraiah of the High Court at Hyderabad on Monday stayed an order of injunction granted by the Civil Court against filmmaker Suresh Babu.
Murali Mohan, a film distributer, had filed a petition in the Civil Court, contending that the panel headed by Suresh Babu in the Telugu Film Chambers of Commerce was contrary to law. The Civil Court granted an injunction restraining Suresh Babu from functioning as the President of the Chambers. It is mainly contended before the Civil Court that the Suresh Babu was in arrears and therefore was ineligible to contest and be elected.
In an appeal before the High Court filed separately by Suresh Babu and the Film Chamber, it was contended that Suresh Babu was not in arrears. However, the High Court order is made in the appeal filed by the Film Chamber.
Rudra Prasad, counsel for the petitioner, pointed out that an elected member ought not to be injuncted from functioning. He said both on facts and in law, the Civil Court had erred in granting an injunction.
