Supreme Court dismissed petition against appointing Justice DY Chandrachud as Chief Justice of India

Supreme Court dismissed petition against appointing Justice DY Chandrachud as Chief Justice of India

On Wednesday, November 2, 2022, the Supreme Court dismissed a petition that sought to restrain Justice DY Chandrachud from taking oath as the next Chief Justice of India. The bench, comprising CJI UU Lalit and Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Bela M Trivedi, stated that "We see no reason to entertain this petition. The entire plea is completely misconceived. Thus dismissed," 

The petition was filed by Mursalin Asijith Shaikh on the basis of a representation filed by one Mr. Rashid Khan Pathan before the President of India against Justice Chandrachud. The complaint went viral in social media and WhatsApp groups, which led the Bar Council of India and several other bar associations to issue public statements strongly condemning the allegations and discarding them as baseless. The petition alleged that Justice Chandrachud had "on twelve occasions acted in willful disregard and deliberate defiance of binding precedents of larger benches of the Supreme Court and denied justice to deserving litigants" The plea also alleged that Justice Chandrachud took up a case related to his son's client and passed an ex-parte order without issuing notice to the respondents, including the state government. "This is an admitted matter, the BCI said that learned judge was not aware that his son was appearing. It cannot be, as the order was annexed"

Justice Chandrachud, the CJI-designate, is set to take oath as the 50th Chief Justice of India on November 9.

Case Title: Mursalin Asijit Shaikh v. Union of India
