Justice C.V.Karthikeyan, before whom the suit filed by Sasikala and TTV Dhinakaran came up for hearing, ordered notice, returnable by November 29, to Edappadi Palaniswami, E.Madhusudhanan, S.Semmalai and Dindigul Sreenivasan.
The judge also directed AIADMK headquarter manager P.Mahalingam to submit the details of bank accounts maintained by the party and persons authorized to operate them by November 10.
In their suit, they also sought several reliefs including the one to declare the resolutions passed in the September 12 meeting organized by the other faction expelling them from the party as illegal and void.
They also sought to restrain Edappadi Palaniswami and Paneerselvam from operating the bank accounts of the party as only Thanjavur MLA Rengasamy who was appointed as the treasurer by the general secretary Sasikala was entitled to operate the accounts.
