Collegium welcomes senior counsel Indu Malhotra, KM Joseph J to Supreme Court

Senior advocate Indu Malhotra and Uttrakhand High Court chief justice KM Joseph have been recommended as new judges of the Supreme Court.

Malhotra was the second woman to be designated as a senior advocate by the Supreme Court, nearly three decades after Leila Seth. She will be the seventh woman judge since independence to be a Supreme Court judge, reports PTI. Justice M Fathima Beevi in 1989 became the first woman judge of the Supreme Court. R Banumathi is the only woman judge in the top court currently.

Joseph set aside President’s rule in Uttarakhand in 2016.

reported The Hindustan Times.

Malhotra would be the first ever female practising lawyer to join the Supreme Court bar directly, if her appointment goes through, according to The Hindu.
