In a single order, chennai family court dismisses 43 compromise cases !!

News from times of India…
Chennai: A family court ruling that dismissed 43 matrimonial cases with compromise memos with a 10-line common order has flummoxed lawyers specialising in divorce, maintenance and child custody.

The first additional family court had on Wednesday listed 43 original petitions where warring spouses had reached an out-of-court settlement to end litigation. They filed compromise memos in court seeking closure of the cases, some of whom were more than seven years old. “Perhaps the spouses were aware the futility of the cases, sought to end the case and go their own ways,” said R Sudha, counsel in one of the cases.
