Chennai: The Madras High Court is set to get 15 new judges with the process for issuing the warrant of appointment being set in motion.

Six of the proposed judges are from the sub-ordinate judiciary while nine are from the Bar. The nine lawyers who are being elevated as judges on Monday wrote their names in the Devanagari script fulfilling a formality before their appointments are officially made.
