Question: Can I file a complaint against the family court?
Asked from: Kerala
You can file a complaint against the sitting subordinate court judge for his misconduct or dishonest conduct in dealing lawsuits. But you must have credible and clinching evidence to prove his misconduct. The procedure is very simple and effective.
If you fail to prove the allegation the court shall take appropriate penal action against you. According to Section 3 of the Judges Protection Act 1985, no court shall entertain or continue any civil or criminal proceeding against a judge either sitting or retired.
But the High Court has power to initiate judicial proceedings against the judge for any criminal act or civil wrong committed in the discharge of duty. Therefore, you should file a complaint to the administrative judge of the High Court.
