KT NEWS SERVICE. Dated: 9/5/2020 4:23:17 PM

NEW DELHI, Sep 4: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a petition of a batch of the direct recruit district judges of Tamil Nadu, staking claim to be promoted as the High Court judges, holding their claim as "wholly untenable" and the writ petition "misconceived."
Chief Justice of India Sharad Arvind Bobde, who wrote the judgment on behalf of the Bench that also consisted of Justice A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian, also rejected their claim to set aside the High Court collegium's recommendation to elevate 19 others as the High Court judges.
Referring to names of a few persons mentioned in the writ petition as appointed to the High Court without completing 10 years of service as district judges, the judgment says: "We do not know whether they got so appointed by clubbing the number of years of practice at the Bar. The factual situation that prevailed in those cases is not available."
