Bar & Bench brings to you the Verdictum of the Supreme Court Judges and the real picture behind the Supreme Court Chambers.
The judiciary is entrusted with the responsibility of providing jus
The only thing which can be assumed from the above written article is the flashy charts that is drawn, on the basis of which a judge credibility is evaluated. Bar and Bench should atleast explain the very basis of such evaluaton.
So in preparing this 'scorecard', will B&B also take into account the number of pages in a judgment where there is a tie in the number of judgments delivered? Correct me if I am wrong, but I will continue to interpret Raghul's above exercise as preparing a "scorecard" for SC Judges based solely on the number of judgments delivered, unless of course Raghul elaborates further on the meaning and usage of "certain indications" in the last segment of his analysis.
Thanks to the efforts made to analyse this but the outcome of a concrete judgement depends on many factors and of course time is one of them.How many of them really brought it in a different way and to what extent it affected the society for a positive change, that really matters. I still remember the judgement in which the parents were asked to explain and even convicted for offering dowry to the in laws. So its not the numbers only which matters but other factors are also important.
Senior in Unknown City - Sir, I am sorry. It is clear from your comments that I have a lot of learning to do. But I responded only because the ones who commented in this thread seemed to presume that my namesake had clerked under Justice Joseph. That too once I got a few calls from a few colleagues and friends. Anyway, I just wanted to ensure that someone is not using my name or professional association as a cover to disguise his or her personal views. That was the only intention as such impersonation is not unheard of in such threads. I deeply regret if any other motives were betrayed, especially if my response was seen as a defense of the judge's record. I personally would have been the happiest if more judgments were authored by the judge but that is besides the point. I really was in two minds before I responded since I suspected and now believe that few of those who ask a serious question here are ready for a serious answer. Perhaps this is not even the place for it. But I totally agree with you and the others that judges's record should be discussed, debated and scrutinised; we differ only in our views of how that scrutiny must be carried out.
@satya prateek: seriously my boy have u considered the most likely assumption that someone may be actually called satya... its not always about you ..and you are obviously someone who likes the sound of his own voice or in this case to read his typed words - you have a good future in the higher judiciary i must say. And what makes these judges the caeser's wife that their actions cannot be scrutinised by the general public. It is this attitude which has allowed a lot of them to get away with murder. The abuse of position by KGB being a case in point.
