Resolution of SC impasse still elusive, as quartet of judges propose making roster public

The Indian Express reported:

Supreme Court crisis: No meeting held with CJI, judges propose roster reform panel | The Indian Express

A scheduled meeting between four senior judges of the Supreme Court, who went public with their criticism against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, and the CJI did not materialise on Wednesday, with one of them, Justice J Chelameswar, on leave. Sources said the crisis after the January 12 press conference by Justices Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph remained unresolved. With Justice Chelameswar set to be away on Thursday, too, this makes the prospect of the meeting unlikely till next week.

Sources said that at the previous meeting, held last week, the moot point under discussion was a proposal from the Chief Justice that all five judges must come out together publicly and state that all issues were now being resolved. Sources say the four judges declined to do so until they saw visible and tangible progress on “issues” raised by them, and “as promised by the Chief Justice.”
