With Bombay HC's Chief Justice Waghela's retirement, is it time to consider longer, fixed tenure?August 10 2016
The Bombay High Court's Chief Justice, DH Waghela retires today, less than six months after he was sworn-in on February 15. CJ Waghela's appointment came five months after the former Chief Justice, Mohit Shah retired; Shah J's tenure lasted for a little over 5 years.
It has been a largely unexceptional tenure, but once the circumstances of his tenure are taken into account, one discovers a larger problem plaguing the higher judiciary - that of administration and tenure.
