Indian Judge Ordered Back to Law School

October 6, 2007 New Delhi's High Court justices, annoyed with lower court judges who issue problematic rulings, have decided to send one of them back to law school. In an order issued late Friday, Judge R. K. Tiwari was told to return for a three-month refresher course after issuing an arrest warrant in defiance of a previous High Court ruling. "Since Tiwari does not have even elementary knowledge of the criminal law and procedure it would be appropriate that he undergoes a refresher course at Delhi Judicial Academy," Justice V. B. Gupta wrote.
