Supreme Court v. Indira Jaising: Supreme Court admits no Rules for Senior Designation but process 'fair and transparent'

Indira Jaising

Former Additional Solicitor General of India, senior counsel Indira Jaising has challenged the procedure for designating senior advocates in the Supreme Court. And now the Court, which is the first respondent in the case, has filed its reply.

The apex court's affidavit makes for some interesting reading, with the Supreme Court terming the averments made by Jaising to be “in bad taste”. With the PIL filed by Jaising now listed for hearing on July 27, things are certainly heating up.
