The division bench headed by Justice K L Manjunath hearing a complaint by M S Khan has directed him to file objections within a week.

Hearing an election petition by M Kumbaiah,  an advocate and party in person, who has challenged his election as an MP, the court has directed to file objections within December 18.
The petitioner had stated that Swamy furnished false information during the elections and had sought to disqualify his candidature.

Case reopened

The High Court has reopened a decade old case related to a cheque bounce case drawn in favour of Veerendra Heggade by a film producer.

Hearing an appeal by Heggade, seeking to reopen the case, which was dismissed by a lower court for non prosecution, Justice Arali Nagaraj restored the case and has directed the petitioner as well as the respondent Rajeev Indrani, a film producer to appear before the court on 1, December, 2009 in this connection.

Heggade, in 1997 had sold a 1920 model fiat car for Rs 4.5 lakh, for which the respondent on 30 October 1997 issued a cheque of Rs 4.5 lakh.

This cheque was dishonoured by the bank. A complaint was lodged and a warrant was issued but was not executed. The counsel for Heggade sought to reopen the case.
