Abstract: The Madras High Court’s judgment has undertaken a mammoth task to determine questions of constitutional importance relating to RTBF as a facet of privacy vis-à-vis court orders/judgments. Justice Venkatesh’s judgment in the present case is highly commendable and the correct position in contrast to the previous High Court order. Moving forward, after the High Court’s significant holdings, writ petitions seeking reliefs in form of a RTBF against court orders/judgments will be highly unlikely to succeed unless they fall under permissible exceptions where a RTBF order should be permitted to redact identity of a petitioner, such as cases involving sexual offences or sexual offences against children etc. This judgment will be a beneficial reference for future judicial pronouncements by High Courts involving RTBF and would arguably reduce judicial incoherence.
