Legally India access restored to Cyril Amarchand lawyers: As expected, conspiracy theories of censorship ‘ridiculous’

LI is delighted to welcome back all CAM lawyers browsing from work computers
LI is delighted to welcome back all CAM lawyers browsing from work computers

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas lawyers again have access to Legally India from their work computers, after Legally India and Bar & Bench were inaccessible yesterday displaying the message “blocked by admin”.

According to several sources, normal access has now been restored.

According to two authoritative sources with knowledge of the issue, managing partner Cyril Shroff, who is currently in London and was not available for comment, was unaware of the block.

It is understood that as soon as he became aware of the block, it was promptly disabled.

A senior Cyril Amarchand source, who declined to be named, said that the idea of the firm indulging in censorship was “ridiculous”.

The block happened inadvertently because new “security processes” were being introduced in the firm’s IT network.

Bar & Bench had first reported the news of the block yesterday, with the headline: “Officially censored? CAM lawyers unable to access Bar & Bench”.

Access at Cyril Amarchand might be restored, but did you know that we have an Android app? Get it here free, it’s quite fast and friendly and you’ll get new updates pushed to your phone directly for super-fast reading.
