CJI Dipak Misra Holds Talks With Four Dissenting Judges


Efforts by sitting judges and advocate bodies to mediate a solution to the crisis have not succeeded.

The Chief Justice of India Dipak Mishra held "a long discussion" with the four dissenting senior judges.

The four judges said CJI Misra was ignoring rules and assigning important cases to select benches "with no rationale".

The Attorney General, K K Venugopal, on Tuesday said that the judicial crisis doesn't seem to have resolved, and it may take 2- 3 days to be finally settled. The committee of lawyers from six district courts passed a resolution and said an internal mechanism should be developed to settle such disputes in the judiciary.

The hearing on Loya's death was attended by curious onlookers after four senior-most judges of the top court held a press conference last Friday accusing Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra of allotting sensitive cases to junior judges. The four judges said they have failed to convince the CJI on certain issues concerning the apex court and had, therefore, made a decision to go public with their concerns. The retired judges are Justice P.B. Sawant, a former Supreme Court judge, Justice A.P. Shah, former Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court, Justice K. Chandru, a former judge of the Madras High Court, and Justice H. Suresh, a former judge of the Bombay High Court. They believe they were helpless and tried everything possible to convince Justice Deepak Mishra, who has been questioned over his integrity.

There was wide long-off and a deep cover. "You can not be too hard on them because a lot of the game is still left to be played". One confident stride out, one flawless arc of the bat, and one meaty chunk of willow meeting leather at its sweetest spot.

Attorney-general K.K. Venugopal's publicly expressed optimism has had to be equally publicly withdrawn. On Friday, it was listed before a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra.

On Sunday, CJI Misra met a seven-member delegation of the Bar Council of India and SCBA's Singh, and had reportedly assured them that the crisis would be sorted out soon and congeniality would prevail.

"They have evolved a formula and while rejecting a name for elevation they are assigning the reason and it is there on the Supreme Court website".

Justice Arun Mishra of the Supreme Court broke down during a meeting with CJI on Monday, alleging that the four senior most judges have tarnished his image. From January 17, the 5-judge constitution bench will hear major cases such as those challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act and its 2013 judgment re-criminalising gay sex between consenting adults.
