The Supreme Court has appointed Ranjan Gogoi, Rajya Sabha MP and former Chief Justice of India, as the sole arbitrator in a case.

A division bench of Justices Indu Malhotra and Ajay Rastogi appointed Gogoi as the arbitrator in the case MCM Service Private Limited v. Ithalia Thai Development Public Company Limited based on the consent of the parties.

The arbitral proceedings will be conducted by the Mumbai Centre fo rInternational Arbitration with the seat of the arbitration at New Delhi. The fees of the arbitrator shall be borne equally by the parties, stated the order passed by the bench on January 11.

Gogoi, who retired as the CJI on November 17, 2019, was nominated as a member of the Rajya Sabha by the President in March 2020. Gogoi's acceptance of the Rajya Sabha nomination raised many eye brows as the move was seen as damaging the perception of judicial independence.

While being the CJI, Gogoi had come under a cloud of sexual harassment allegations raised by a staff of the Supreme Court. He was given a clean chit by an in-house panel comprising Justices SA Bobde, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee. The complainant, who was dismissed from service earlier, had not participated in the in-house proceedings citing apprehension of bias. After the retirement of Gogoi, the Supreme Court reinstated the complainant into service.
