Supreme Court rules; CJI to decide on allocation of cases; in response to PIL

This was in response to the Public Interest Litigation filed by advocate Ashok Pande

In yet another significant ruling, the Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that the Chief Justice of India (CJI) has the authority to decide allocation of cases and the setting up of benches.

This was in response to the Public Interest Litigation filed by advocate Ashok Pande.

The PIL had asked that the CJI consult the two senior-most judges of the apex court to allocate work.

The decision was given by a bench comprising CJI Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud.

The three judge bench ruled that the CJI has been entrusted with the power to constitute benches and allocate them work.

The PIL had been in view of a press conference in January by four senior SC judges.

The four Justices had at the time aired their grievances against CJI Dipak Misra and the manner in which the cases were being assigned.
