SC Lawyers Seek Extra-Ordinary Meeting Of SCBA To Protest Against Exclusion Of Justice KM Joseph

An extraordinary meeting of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) has been sought for to pass a resolution against the Centre’s exclusion of Justice KM Joseph from elevation to the Supreme Court, ignoring the recommendations of the SC collegium.

The proposed resolution expressed deep anguish at the non-inclusion of Justice KM Joseph and condemned the “selective approach of the Executive”. The request moved by about 100 members of the SCBA is endorsed by senior lawyers like CU Singh, Vivek Tankha, Indira Jaisingh, Arvind Datar, Hufeza Ahmadi, Harin P Raval and Pallav Sisodia, and it calls upon the Supreme Court to take appropriate steps to restore the independence of judiciary.
