SC judges roster published on website, in bid to bring a little more transparency into case assigments

The rather badly-scanned PDF contains a list of all matters that each judge handles, though that by itself is unlikely to remove the CJI's discretion from the process completely.

The Indian Express reported:

Supreme Court makes public: Which judge gets what matter, move to elevate two judges | The Indian Express

FOR THE first time, the Supreme Court has made public its Judges Roster — a list that shows which judge hears what matter by subject — with Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra retaining all matters related to PILs.

The roster was posted on the Supreme Court’s official website Thursday, nearly three weeks after its four most senior judges — Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph — went public with concerns over the conduct of the CJI, especially in the allocation of cases.

The website also posted the Collegium’s unanimous decision on January 10 to recommend the elevation of Senior Advocate Indu Malhotra and Uttarakhand Chief Justice K M Joseph as Supreme Court judges. Sources close to the four most senior judges described Thursday’s move to make the roster public as an acknowledgement that “something was amiss” and a “moral victory” for their stance.
