In the PIL, Prashant Bhushan appearing for Common Cause, argued yesterday before the Division Bench comprising Chief Justice A.P. Shah and Justice R.S. Endlaw that,"Giving opinions in writing on a point in issue to be produced in a court of law is a violation of Article 124(7) of the Constitution which prohibits a retired judge of the Supreme Court from acting or pleading before any court or tribunal,”

Bhushan continues his drive reform for greater Judicial accountability. The matter is due to come up on March 10 where the Union Government is to submit its stand on the issue.
