HYDERABAD: A division bench of the High Court on Thursday restrained the authorities from going ahead with appointing 17 district and sessions judges who were selected through direct recruitment.

The stay will be in force for 10 days and the case was posted for hearing after the court's Sankranti vacation.

The bench comprising justice L Narasimha Reddy and justice KG Shankar was dealing with a writ petition filed by S Aruna, an advocate, who appeared for the written test and the interview. The petitioner informed the bench that the notification was issued in August 2010 and the written test was conducted in March 2011 and the results announced in August.

The rules published in 2008 mandated that each candidate should get minimum marks in the written test and interview to be considered for appointment.
