Leave the matter pertaining to appointment of judges to us, says SC

Leave the matter related to the appointment of judges to us, a bench comprising Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan made the comment on Thursday while dismissing the petitions related to the issue.

During the hearing, the counsel representing a writ petitioner said that his client has the right to be informed correctly as the media had misled the people during the elevation of Justice KM Joseph, saying that he may not be elevated to the top court.

At this point, the SC bench said:

This matter pertains to appointment of judges. Leave it to us, we can take care of it. The petition is dismissed.”

The bench also dismissed a plea filed by advocate ML Sharma who had sought contempt action against the lawyers who have signed the impeachment motion against CJI Dipak Misra.

A similar petition filed by an association of lawyers, pertaining to issues related to the judiciary, was also dismissed by the court. While dismissing the petition, the SC bench said:

This petition also deals with judiciary. Leave it to us. Sorry, we are entertaining these kind of matters.”
