Four dissenting SC Judges not on CJI's New Constitution Bench

Reading list Six articles on the controversy surrounding Aadhaar

Justices Arun Mishra and MM Shantanagoudar, however, ruled that the petitioners should be able to see these papers.

Chief Justice of India continued efforts to reach out to the four judges who had criticised him in public and discussed "all issues" at a meeting on Tuesday.

He said the Council members had met 15 judges of the Supreme Court following the crisis in the highest judiciary and they had assured that the issues had been resolved.

Asked what these issues were, he had said they included the "allocation of cases by CJI", and had added, "we owe a responsibility to the institution and the nation".

The almost 15-minute conversation between the Chief Justice and his four senior most colleagues would be followed by a similar meeting on Wednesday morning as the talks remained inconclusive, the sources said. The four dissenting judges were Justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Bhimarao Lokur and Kurian Joseph.

All four of them said that "they were convinced that for the survival of democracy an impartial judge and justices are needed".

New York Giants Rumors: Pat Shurmur now 'the top choice'
The Colts still would have a vacancy, though, and while Wilks has not interviewed with that team, he could be a late candidate. NY owns the No. 2 pick in April's NFL Draft and is expected to select a quarterback to serve as Eli Manning's heir.

They complained that "administration of Supreme Court is not in order and there have been things less than desirable that have happened in the court".

As reported by The Hindu, the differences between the Chief Justice and senior judges not only persist but India's leading English daily citing sources said there have been no attempts to resolve the issue.

Has the present CJI violated the precedence while allocating important cases to the so-called junior judges? The Attorney General had called the crisis 'a storm in the a tea cup'. If the same bench handles all these matters, it would have to handle 13 Constitution cases, which would be heavy workload.

A local newspaper - The Hindu on Tuesday quoting sources close to rebel Supreme Court judges termed the reports of conciliation as "deliberate misinformation".

The CJI and two other judges on the bench - A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud - did not respond to his plea. The four judges said they have failed to convince the CJI on certain issues concerning the apex court and had, therefore, chose to go public with their concerns.

He also said the death of special CBI judge B H Loya, who was trying the Sohrabudin Sheikh fake encounter case, should not be raked up as his family members have made their stand clear and want no more harassment.
