Public interest litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Bombay High Court seeking the initiation of contempt of court proceedings against Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray,  Dilip Walse Patil, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, and others for allegedly passing remarks against the judiciary.

The petition filed by the Indian Bar Association claimed that the respondents holding ministerial positions have leveled several "false, scandalous and contemptuous" allegations against the judges of the High Court and the entire judicial system.
