The Forest Rights Act

Madras High Court (Madurai Bench)

T.N.S Murugadoss Theerthapathi vs. Union of India and Ors. (WP (MD) 533/2008)
Petitioner: TNS Murugadoss Theerthapathi (ex- Zamindar, Singampatti)
Respondents: Union of India (and MoEF), PCCF Tamil Nadu, PCCF (Wildlife) Tamil Nadu, Conservator of Forests (Tirunelveli)

This petition mostly makes the general arguments shared by all the cases.  It is essentially identical in content (though in a different order) to the Chennai, Karnataka, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh petitions (see above and below).

Status:  The Bench has quoted the Madras HC order but issued no further orders  of its own.  The matter was last heard on June 9th, 2008 and is now adjourned.
