Collegium meeting on KM Joseph, other judges remains inconclusive

Collegium meeting on KM Joseph, other judges remains inconclusive

But, as no decision could be taken on elevation of other judges to the apex court, the two-hour collegium meeting also deferred the decision for reiteration of elevation of Justice Joseph to the Supreme Court, said court sources.

Sources said the collegium met to deliberate on several issues, including reconsidering the name of Justice Joseph for elevation to the apex court, after it was returned by the Central government. The meeting, attended by all five members of the Collegium, lasted almost two hours and was longest any Collegium meeting has lasted this year. According to rules, if the Supreme Court reiterates the name, the Centre would be left with no choice but to swear him in.

On May 11, the Collegium had declared that "The Chief Justice and other members of the Collegium have, on principle, unanimously agreed that the recommendation for appointment of Mr Justice K M Joseph, Chief Justice, Uttarakhand High Court (Parent High Court: Kerala) as a Judge of the Supreme Court should be reiterated".

A source in the apex court said the collegium had initially discussed sending back the file of Justice Joseph first and not wait till the other names are finalised. It had also questioned his seniority for elevation as a judge of the apex court.

In doing so, it has expressed its concurrence with a unanimous recommendation made in this regard by the Rajasthan High Court Collegium, as well as the state government. The collegium meeting, which forwarded its recommendations, was chaired by Chief Justice Dipak Misra and attended by all the four other judges - Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Lokur and Kurian Joseph.

There are now seven vacancies in the Supreme Court, with two more vacancies likely to arise in the next two months, due to the retirement of Justices J. Chelameswar on June 22, and Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, on July 6.

The meeting mainly centred around names from the high courts of Calcutta, Telangana, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and the Northeast for elevation to the Supreme Court.

Justice Jhala's name has been approved after taking into consideration the material on record.
