Supreme Court Round-Up for Nov 30

Important cases heard by the Supreme Court on Thursday, November 30:

* SC quashed the reappointment of Gopinath Ravindran as the vice chancellor of Kannur University, as it came down hard on the Kerala government for its “unwarranted intervention” in facilitating a fresh term for him at the helm of the institution. It also assailed Governor Arif Mohammed Khan, the chancellor, saying he did not independently apply his mind despite not being a mere “titular head”.

* NIA strongly opposed in SC Elgar Parishad-Maoist links case accused Shoma Kanti Sen’s plea seeking interim bail on health grounds, saying she was suffering from general ailments and there was nothing special about it.

* SC adjourned until December 12 the hearing of TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu’s plea seeking anticipatory bail in the FibreNet case.

* State is under obligation to ensure dignified conditions of work to the judicial officers and it cannot raise the defence of an increase in financial burden or expenditure, SC said.
