Full Court expected to resolve SC crisis

Full Court expected to resolve SC crisis

A group of Supreme Court judges is brokering peace between Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra and his four senior colleagues, Justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, MB Lokur and Kurian Joseph (the second, third, fourth, and fifth most senior respectively).

Justice Mishra said that he has been working hard and was overburdened.

On whether he had a meeting or spoke with any of the four judges or the CJI, Venugopal said, "Nothing of that sort has happened".

On Monday, Justice Arun Mishra reportedly broke down at a meeting with other judges and said he was "unfairly" targeted and questions raised about his "competence". The judges had said they were discharging their debt to the nation and that addressing media was their last resort. The mere fact of meetings that various groups and individuals held with Chief Justice Dipak Misra seems to have been the source of optimism. Some Supreme Court lawyers have praised their actions whilst others have said that rifts in the apex judiciary should not be in the public domain. They also said this is probably the first step towards making efforts to resolve the distrust between the CJI and four judges, the report said. When justice is seen to be fair-minded and even-handed in respect of any possible encroachment on the judicial sphere by the executive, the Supreme Court's honour will be deemed to be fully restored. Despite much controversy, the Chief Justice of India did not change the bench and the bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Mohan M Shantanagoudar heard the matter. Earlier in the day, Attorney General K K Venugopal expressed the crisis will be settled soon.

He added: "It opens doors but so many times it's been said having a good career as a player doesn't make you a good manager". Wales failed to reach the 2018 World Cup in Coleman's last campaign in charge.

"Whatever differences judges have over roaster or allocation of cases, should be resolved by in-house mechanism without airing views in public", it noted.

It would appear that the four judges have concerns that are indeed grave and do indeed begin to swing the needle of the compass in the direction of Mr Modi.

However, in the presser held by advocate Prashant Bhushan and Anjali Bharadwaj, convenor and member of executive committee of CJAR respectively, they once again raked up the medical college scam in which it was alleged that bribes were paid in the name of judges.

The four judges had addressed a press conference on January 12 claiming that CJI Deepak Misra has not been allocating the cases wisely.
