Kenrise Media Private Limited, also known as The Ken, along with Rohin Dharmakumar, Seema Singh and Sumanth Raghavendra (Plaintiffs) filed a lawsuit against Ashish K. Mishra, Editor-in-Chief of The Morning Context, along with Harveen Ahluwalia, Pranav S., Pradip K. Saha and Priya Bubna, the co-founders of The Morning Context. In their lawsuit before the commercial court in Bengaluru, the Plaintiffs made several false and malicious claims with a plea that they be granted three ad interim reliefs—in effect asking that: (a) Ashish K. Mishra be restrained from carrying out his profession, and The Morning Context and all defendants be restrained from doing business; (b) The Morning Context be restrained from utilizing any confidential data, which The Ken alleged the defendants had stolen; and (c) All defendants be restrained from soliciting services and business of The Ken.
Late last year the Hon’ble District Court rejected all the three interim reliefs sought by The Ken. The Ken then appealed against the lower court order before the High Court of Karnataka. The Hon’ble High Court Bench led by the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Karnataka passed its order today and has dismissed The Ken’s appeal and has not granted an injunction.
We are delighted with the Court order. It strengthens our belief in what we set out to do at The Morning Context. Tell stories that matter which serve you, the reader.
