After a strongly worded letter from Supreme Court Bar Association [SCBA] President Dushyant Dave complaining about “sudden and unannounced listing of matters”, to the Chief Justice of India , the Association today decided to convene a Special General Body Meeting on 10th March, 2015 at 4.15. An Extraordinary Emergent Meeting of the Executive Committee of the Supreme Court Bar Association was held today at 1.30 pm, to discuss the situation, arising on account of several developments involving sudden listing of pending matters, and their disposal, by some Benches of the Supreme Court, resulting in grave miscarriage of justice and irreparable damage to litigants and their Cause.
According to the Executive Committee
These developments have arisen on account of following:
The SCBA Secretary sent a letter dated 20.02.2015, to the Secretary General of the Supreme Court of India requesting him to do the needful forthwith. This was also followed by a letter sent personally to the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India by the SCBA President, on 20.02.2015. According to the Committee, these requests have been completely ignored, both by the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India and as well as by the Registry and no effort has been made to invite the elected representatives to discuss and resolve the matters, neither have any efforts been made even to acknowledge the aforesaid letters in writing.
In the meeting today, the Executive Committee had unanimously resolved to convene an Extraordinary Emergent General Body Meeting of Members of the SCBA to discuss the matter and to pass appropriate resolution and accordingly, the following resolutions are proposed to be considered by the said meeting, for the decision of the General Body.
