Chief Justice KM Joseph of the Uttarakhand High Court has been transferred to the Andhra Pradesh High Court, according to media reports.

A high court bench headed by Joseph recently quashed President’s rule in the state, where the Harish Rawat-led Congress government is in the midst of severe factionalism.

Joseph assumed charge as the Chief Justice of the Uttarakhand High Court in July 2014.

Acting Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale of the Hyderabad High Court has been posted as the Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court.
