I know a corrupt judge when I see him. You are almost there, Mr. Rohtagi. Don’t forget Hon’ble Justice Joseph’s BenchMate in almost 150 orders/judgments. The one who saved the President in Purno Agitok Sangma v. Pranab Mukherjee, (2013) 2 SCC 239. The one who became a Chief Justice of India too. “Are you watching closely?”
'The Last Word' seeks to include not only wise and witty sayings of the judges but also curiosities of lawyers and the law. This blog is not of obligation but of delight. I frankly confess my ignorance of much that ought to be included from overseas jurisdictions; and I utter a gentle prayer that those who know better would lighten my darkness. I am confident that I am not alone in my refusal to believe that the law is tedious or that Indians really like all their law dull. For all that has escaped these percipient eyes, mea culpa maxima. History, after all, has many cunning passages, contrived corridors and issues.
