Day 11 Arguments: 7 November 2019

The Union has yet to notify Justice Akhil Kureshi's appointment as the Chief Justice of the Tripura High Court. This despite the fact that on 5 September, the Collegium yielded to the Union's request not to recommend him for the post of Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court. 

 

Today, in a brief hearing, Chief Justice Gogoi's Bench referred the matter to Justice Bobde's Bench. Justice Bobde will become the new Chief Justice on 18 November. 

 

The next hearing is on 13 November.
