: Ms.G.ROHINI, CHIEF JUSTICE
1. By the order under appeal dated 04.12.2014 the learned Single
Judge vacated the interim order of status quo granted on 09.01.2014 in
Contempt Case No.970 of 2013.
2. Aggrieved by the same, the petitioner in the Contempt Case
preferred the present appeal under Clause 10 of the Letters Patent.
3. The learned counsel for the respondents, at the outset, raised an
objection as to the maintainability of the appeal under Clause 10 of the
Letters Patent contending that an appeal against an interim order passed
in proceedings under the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971. To substantiate
the said objection, the learned counsel placed reliance upon Parents
Association of Students v. M.A. Khan, (2009) 2 SCC 64, VM Manohar
Prasad v. N. Ratnam Raju, (2004) 13 SCC 610, R.N. Dey v. Bhagyabati
Pramanik, (2000) 4 SCC 400 and Raj Singh Gehlot v. Pardiam Exports
Ltd., 2010 (120) DRJ 80.
