SC stays CIC order on judges' appointment
New Delhi, Dec 4: The Supreme Court on Friday, Dec 4, stayed the Central Information Commission's (CIC) direction asking it to make public information pertaining to appointment of three judges to the apex court.

The apex court also stayed another CIC's order which had directed disclosure of communication between Justice R Raghupathy of Madras High Court on alleged interference by a union minister in a sub-judice matter.

The Court sought the reply within three weeks and granted another two weeks for filing of rejoinder.

On Dec 1, the Supreme Court had moved before itself a petition challenging the order of CIC which had directed it to divulge information relating to appointment of judges to the apex court and communication between Chief Justice of India and Justice Raghupathy.
