Former Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar has initiated legal action against the Judicial and Legal Service Commission.
This was confirmed by her attorney Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj Friday morning.
Ayers-Caesar is seeking to have the court judicially review the move by the JLSC, headed by Chief Justice Ivor Archie and the Office of the President for its decision to strip her of her position as a High Court judge, which she says is illegal.
The matter has been assigned to Justice David Harris; a date for hearing is yet to be set.
The issue was one of the points discussed by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar on Tuesday, however both leaders could not agree on a manner of approach.
