Mobile court: Appeals on Sunday’s cause list

The Supreme Court will hold hearing on Sunday on the appeals against the High Court verdicts regarding the executive magistrate-led mobile courts and removal of its judges.

The appeals have been included for hearing in Sunday’s cause list of the seven-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.

Following three separate writ petitions, the HC on May declared unconstitutional the rules under which executive magistrates run mobile courts.

On May 14, the government filed three separate provisional leave to appeal petitions with the SC seeking stay on the HC verdict.

Following the government petitions, the apex court the same day stayed the HC verdict and sent the petitions to its full bench for their hearing.

The petitions have been included as item No 1, 2 and 3 in tomorrow’s cause list of the apex court for hearing.

Earlier on May 9, the apex court fixed May 21 (tomorrow) for resuming the hearing the government appeal against the HC verdict that scrapped the 16th amendment of the constitution that had empowered parliament to remove judges for incapacity or misbehaviour.
