SC recommends five lawyers as Karnataka HC judges

07 Décembre 2017

The Supreme Court collegium has recommended the appointment of 25 additional judges as permanent judges in five high courts and elevated 19 lawyers as judges in three high courts.

The advocates who have been cleared for the elevation include Dixit Krishna Shripad (Assistant Solicitor General of India-Karnataka), Shankar Ganapathi Pandit, Ramakrishna Devdas (Principal Government Advocate), Bhotanhosur Mallikarjuna Shyam Prasad, Siddappa Sunil Dutt Yadav, and others. The collegium also noted that the CM had conveyed his disagreement on some names and forwarded communications from bodies of advocates expressing concern that the names recommended did not provide opportunity of representation to a cross-section of society. Meanwhile, former judge of High Court A N Venugopala Gowda and two advocates moved the Karnataka High Court seeking directions for early appointment of judges.

A candidate is initially appointed as a judge of the HC for a two-year period as an additional judge and then is conferred the status of a permanent judge after the collegium is satisfied with his or her judicial work.

Livelaw reported that the Karnataka governor and chief minister had objections to some of the names and these were rejected by the collegium. "As per comments of the Intelligence Bureau on one of these complaints, the allegations are not established or are incorrect, (and) the said complaints deserve to be ignored", the SC collegium comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices J Chelameswar and Ranjan Gogoi said in the resolution dated December 4.

The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through the SEC website . The firm has a market capitalization of $152,850.00, a price-to-earnings ratio of 14.48, a PEG ratio of 1.94 and a beta of 1.06.

Five laywers were elevated as judges to the Karnataka HC. The lawyers cleared for elevation are Shampa Sarkar, Sabyasachi Chaudhury, Ravi Krishan Kapur, Arindam Mukherjee and Sakya Sen.

The apex court body said the high court collegium had taken into account merit, experience, performance, character and conduct of the recommendees and dealt with adequate representation. Nine high courts are without full-time chief justices and there are six existing vacancies in the Supreme Court also.

The collegium rejected the name of Advocate Piush Chaturvedi as "his average professional income is well below the prescribed minimum professional income limit".

The case of advocate B. Pugalendhi for elevation to the Madras High Court has been deferred for the present in the light of "certain adverse but unconfirmed inputs" received by the Collegium, the note said. Justice G Narendar, presently serving as an additional judge, has been recommended for appointment as a permanent judge of the Karnataka HC.
