The four judges suggested that a committee of senior judges be created who will decide on the allocation of cases which are sensitive and important in nature.
They included justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao, who had visited Justice Chelameswar's official residence here a couple of times since the January 12 news conference.The top four judges had gone public with their grievances against the Chief Justice of India, saying "unless the judiciary was preserved, democracy can't be protected in the country". The response to this by the CJI would be crucial in the coming days. The first meeting between the two sides after the virtual revolt by the four judges at a press conference last Friday was on Tuesday.
Reports say that the judges stuck to their demands.
A source close to one of the four judges said there were other judges who have been actively having parleys with the Chief Justice of India and them to resolve the crisis.
The judges would meet again to finalise on the proposal. There was no confirmation as to when the next meeting would take place.The medical admissions scam, which triggered the crisis, was also discussed at the meeting. However, the talks remained inconclusive.
The Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra is striving hard to put an end to all the further uproar that could possibly arise out of the press conference held by four Supreme Court judges- Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Jospeh - on Friday (January 12) in New Delhi.
As per the convention in the higher judiciary, the Chief Justice is the master of the roaster.
The bench said it would look into the matter only after the court Registry took the petition on record and listed it for hearing.
