I can pass on bare knowledge. While a young boy below teens, in the 1940's I had come in contact with Thirupathy family involve in V vs T case with regards to Tirupathi Temple. I think it started in late 1800's or early 1900's and went to the Privy Council It was reagrding the morning service- Sree Saila Dayapatram, an invocation to Desikha. Alos U and Y Namas were questioned. The ruling was in favor Y's and my friends lost ( or paid their share or lost privileges, aTamarappu family ). I think there is a Ph.D. thesis from U of Pa by a student ( AMERICAN?). She is now teaching in Ohio. You may find the reference in Many Ramayanas. I will see if I can get the details. I copied some of the pages from Fort St. George( Madras ) Gazette, a few years ago when I was there. The facilities were poor annd place stank, so I could not pusue it. Hope to do so in coming years.
