Four senior-most Supreme Court judges, who had held an unprecedented press conference and raised issue of assignment of cases, today attended court and took up routine work.

Manan Mishra, Chairman, Bar Council of India on Monday informed,”As you can see that the matter has been laid to rest and all courts rooms in the Supreme Court are functioning normally.”

“It was an internal issue and has now been resolved,”he added.

The four judges — Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph — have taken up their respective business on the first working day of the top court after the January 12 press conference.

In the presser, these judges had flagged some problems, including the assigning of cases in the apex court, and said there were certain issues afflicting the country’s highest court.

Yesterday, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra had met a seven-member delegation of the Bar Council of India and Supreme Court Bar Association President Vikas Singh and had assured them that the crisis would be sorted out soon and congeniality would prevail.
