Passing orders on a petition filed bySuhasini Maniratnam, who was caught in the controversy after she expressed support to Khushboo, the judge stayed two more defamatory proceedings against her in the Tiruchengode judicial magistrate court.

Justice Masilamani stayed the proceedings and also dispensed with the personal appearance of the two actors in the court.

Wasting the courts time with such frivolous charges - aren't there enough really serious cases clogging the already overburdened courts?
