CJI Thakur studies studies case mountain: Dave, Gogoi, Thakur, Lokur & Khehar were strongest disposers, Dipak Misra & others slower

The fastest working out of 13 Supreme Court judges were justices AR Dave, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur, JS Khehar and Chief Justice of India (CJI) TS Thakur, while justice Dipak Misra was the slowest according to a basic arithmetic study commissioned by CJI Thakur, reported the Times of India.

CJI Thakur asked the Supreme Court registry to determine how each of 13 judges on the roster had performed in terms of disposal of cases, from July 2015 to December 2015, by simply subtracting the total number of cases the judge disposed of from the number of cases in which the judge issued notice.

The registry also documented the total number of cases before each of the 13 judges.

Other slow judges in the roster, after Dipak Misra, according to the study, were justices PC Ghose, V Sen, Kurian Joseph, F M I Kalifulla, M Y Eqbal, V G Gowda and J Chelameswar. All of these judges, and Misra, added to pendency instead of reducing it.
