SC collegium likely to meet today on Justice Joseph's elevation issue

The Supreme Court Collegium is likely to meet today to reconsider its recommendation to elevate Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice K.M. Joseph and other judges to the top court. Quoting sources, PTI reports that the collegium, which includes Chief Justice Dipak Misra and the top four senior judges, will in the afternoon. 

Besides Justice Joseph, the collegium will also consider names of judges from the Calcutta, Rajasthan, and Telangana and Andhra Pradesh High Courts for elevation as Judges of the Supreme Court. 

The development came in the wake of a letter by the second senior-most judge of the apex court, Justice J. Chelameswar, to the CJI on Wednesday seeking reiteration of collegium's 10th January unanimous recommendation for elevating Justice Joseph. 

With just six working days left before Justice Chelameswar bids adieu to the Supreme Court, he said the recommendation must be done at the earliest and the file carrying the reiteration sent back to the government. Though Justice Chelameswar, a member of the collegium, is retiring on June 22, the top court is left with six working days before it goes for a six-week summer break next weekend.
