SC stays Gujarat HC proceedings against 27 judges

The Supreme Court today stayed proceeding against 27 retired and sitting judges initiated by Gujarat HC for allegedly getting plots in violation of law.

A bench headed by Chief Justice H L Datu stayed the proceeding on a plea of a retired HC judge challenging Gujarat HC order.

The case was mentioned before the bench in morning and the CJI agreed to grant an urgent hearing and posted it 12:40 PM. The bench took up the matter at noon and stayed the HC order after a brief hearing.

In an unprecedented move, the High Court had on Monday issued notices to sitting as well as former judges, including that of the Supreme Court, over allotment of residential plots to these judges by theGujarat government in Neetibaug Co-operative Housing Society in Sola area in Ahmadabad.
