Another 13-Judge Bench?
A friend mentioned to me in Bangalore last month that our Supreme Court has constituted another 13-judge bench to hear a Bombay rent-control case. If this story is true, it will be the first time such a large bench has assembled since the Keshavananda review bench was dissolved by Chief Justice Ray in 1976. Read more about the odd proceedings, which lasted two days, in Baxi's classic, the Indian Supreme Court and Politics.
