After Advocate General Subodh Kantak moved to modify the issues framed in his Rs. 15 crore defamation suit against Advocate Aires Rodrigues, Civil Judge Senior Division at Panjim Kshama Joshi adjourned the matter for 2nd July for orders on the application.
The defendant Adv. Rodrigues opposed the application arguing that it was a mere ploy on the part of the Advocate General to delay the proceedings.
Meanwhile as the Judge asked Adv. Rodrigues to give in writing his submission that she should recuse herself from hearing the case given the close friendship her husband has with the Advocate General, Adv. Rodrigues said he would move an application before the Chief Judicial Magistrate to transfer the case to some other judge.
