Justice Mishra said that he has been working hard and was overburdened.
Noone, but the chief justice of India was questioned for his professional behaviour by the top judges, who are his colleagues but not treated like one. The brief meeting, however, was not considered sufficient to reach complete understanding on all the issues which have caused the rift between the CJI and the four puisne judges.
After meeting Chelameswar in the afternoon, Mishra said, "We have been told that there is no crisis". Earlier in the day, CJI Misra had invited the four rebel judges over to his chamber for a discussion and to try and find an amicable solution to the crisis that has hit the top court's reputation.
Sources said that the impasse over including the four seniormost judges in the Constitution Bench still remains.
Ex-England striker Cyrille Regis dies at 59
The terrible news we're all waking up to today is that the great Cyrille Regis has passed away at the age of just 59. Regis was born on February 9, 1958 in the South American country French Guiana, to Robert and Mathile Regis.
The tone of the meeting has been cordial and everyone agreed that the issues were more important than the personalities.
They complained that "administration of Supreme Court is not in order and there have been things less than desirable that have happened in the court".
BCI Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra told PTI that a seven- member delegation yesterday met Justices Gogoi and Lokur, who both gave an assurance that there was no crisis at all.
The apex court had dismissed the plea of CJAR for Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the bribery case in which the CBI filed an FIR against ex-judge of Orissa high court I M Quddusi. Only such measures would assure the people that the Supreme Court is functioning in a fair and transparent manner and that the power of the Chief Justice as master of roster is not being misused to achieve a particular result in important and sensitive cases.
Airbus might have to 'shut down' A380 superjumbo production
Airbus confirmed it plans as part of any possible Emirates deal to reduce A380 output to six aircraft a year from 15 last year. Workers arrive at the Airbus factory in Hamburg, Germany, where the A320 series of passenger planes are assembled.
Meanwhile, it is learnt that there was no effort from either the CJI or from the four judges to initiate a discussion on the Friday press conference when they met on Monday over tea. Judge Loya had heard a case in which BJP leader Amit Shah was discharged later.
None of the four judges has been included in the bench.
Advocate RP Luthra raked up the issue in the CJI's court, claiming there was a conspiracy to destroy the Supreme Court as an independent institution. The four judges said they have failed to convince the CJI on certain issues concerning the apex court and had, therefore, made a decision to go public with their concerns. The four former judges have also urged the CJI to establish rational, fair and transparent rules for the allocation of benches.
