Rejecting the petition filed by lawyer Kamini Jaiswal, the apex court used some strong words to slam lawyers who had earlier raised objections over the bench hearing the matter. However high we are, we are not above the law. Chief Justice of India Dipak Mishra is not among the three judges who will hear the case today, which is based on a medical college in Lucknow reportedly paying bribes to judges to reverse its blacklisting by the government.
What he sought was "justice" in the instant case as Article 142 says: "The Supreme Court in the exercise of its jurisdiction may pass such decree or make such order as is necessary for doing complete justice in any cause or matter pending before it".
Some lawyers had asked that the Chief Justice recuse himself because he has been hearing the case of the medical college.
Jaiswal's petition was mentioned on November 9 before a two-judge bench headed by Justice Chelameswar for urgent hearing.
Attorney General KK Venugopal argued in his personal capacity.
It had over-ruled the order of Justice Chelameswar directing a constitution bench hearing, saying "if any such order has been passed by any bench, that can not hold the field as that will be running counter to the order passed by the constitution bench".
Justice Arun Misra, the judge who authored the verdict, said no judge was mentioned in the FIR filed by CBI against the UP organisation - Prasad Educational Trust. "Refraining from initiating contempt. Let us work together for this great institution", the Supreme Court bench of Justices RK Agarwal, Arun Mishra and AM Khanwilkar said.
Retired Orissa High Court judge Ishrat Masroor Quddusi was arrested by the CBI in September in connection with a corruption case.
The Supreme Court's constitutional bench will now hear the matter of reservation of SC/ST's in promotion in jobs.
The bench will also decided if the allegations made against the chief justice amounted to contempt of court. The judge had later been released on bail.
