In rare move, SC bench order criticises CJI’s listing system

In a rare instance of open criticism of the Supreme Court’s new case listing method introduced by new CJI U U Lalit, a bench led by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul has in a judicial order said that the new listing system gave inadequate time to the judges to take up the matters. It said, “The new listing system is not giving an adequate time to take up matters fixed for hearing like the present case as there are a number of matters within the span of ‘Afternoon’ session.”
