SC: Oral mentioning for unlisted matters only before CJI


After the unprecedented constitution bench hearing of the Supreme Court on Friday regarding the petitions of Advocate Prashant Bhushan and Kamini Jaiswal, the Supreme Court Registry has released a new circular regarding the oral mentioning for matters which have not been assigned to any bench.

According to the circular, the advocates and parties in person are directed that the “matters which have not already been assigned/listed before any other bench, will be allowed only before the Court presided over by Hon’ble the Chief Justice of India at 10.30 A.M.”

This circular has been signed by the Registrar (J-I and J-II) of the Supreme Court and attempts to clear the issue regarding the supremacy of the Chief Justice of India in administrative decisions, particularly the roster of the judges.
