Today, the print media and electronic media are freely commenting on pending matters, seeking to influence the judges and public perception. This is causing great damage to the institution”, the AG told a bench headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar.Adding that this has taken “serious proportions” these days, he continued :”Today, when I watch TV, I see comments about the bail application based on statements stated to be made to police. When a bail plea comes up for hearing, the channels flash conversations between the accused and someone. This can be very damaging to the accused”.Mr. Venugopal went to the extent of saying that such comments amount to contempt of court.The Attorney General also cited the example of Rafale case to drive home his point.”Another trend, for example, in a case like Rafale, on the day when the bench is taking up the case, there is an article commenting about the case with some documents. This issue needs to be addressed”.Senior Advocate Dr. Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for Bhushan, expressed his disagreement with the AG’s suggestions to club issues related to sub-judice comments with the questions formulated in the case which touch upon the ambit of contempt jurisdiction.The issues related to sub-judice is already covered by the Sahara judgment, Dhavan said. He added that joining those issues to the case will make the matter complex.Dr. Dhavan also opined that the press cannot be prevented from commenting on cases just because they are pending. He said that the decisions of foreign jurisdictions and the ECHR allow more latitude for media comments on sub-judice matters.”When Shylock’s case is on, can we tell the Press not to talk about it”, Dhavan said quoting Lord Reid, a Scottish judge.The Attorney General later said that he will hold discussions with Dr. Dhavan and Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal (appearing for the second accused Tarun Tejpal, former Editor of Tehelka magazine) regarding the questions to be formulated in the case.Accordingly, the bench, also including Justices B R Gavai and Krishna Murari, proceeded to adjourn the hearing until the first week of November.The case relates to the suo moto contempt proceedings initiated by the Supreme Court in 2009 against Prashant Bhushan over his remarks in an interview given to Tehelka magazine that half of the previous 16 CJIs were corrupt.Based on a complaint then made by Senior Advocate Harish Salve against the interview, the SC initiated suo moto contempt case.The case, which had been lying dormant for over a decade, again come to life last July, when the matter got listed along with the new contempt case taken by the SC this year against two tweets of Bhushan.On August 17, a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra had formulated three questions of law for consideration. They are :(i) In case a public statement as to corruption by a particular Judge(s) is permissible, under what circumstances and on what basis, it can be made, and safeguards, if any, to be observed in that regard ? (ii) What procedure is to be adopted to make complaint in such cases when the allegation is about the conduct of a sitting Judge ?(iii) Whether against retired Judge(s), any allegation as to corruption can be made publicly, thereby shaking the confidence of general public in the judiciary; and whether the same would be punishable under the Contempt of Courts Act?Apart from that, Bhushan also submitted ten additional questions of law, which the bench agreed to consider.Following the retirement of Justice Arun Mishra on September 2, the matter got listed before the bench headed by Justice Khanwilkar.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

It’s not you, it’s me.All right, that’s not true — it is you. But breaking up is hard to do, and I’m new at this.Passing the torch · Oregon’s Jordan Holmes lifts LaMichael James after a touchdown in a game that saw the Ducks dethrone USC. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily TrojanWe’ve been inseparable for what seems like forever. Whenever somebody mentioned “Pac-10,” they couldn’t help but bring up “USC.” As a perennial champion, you gave meaning to me as a conference. We had a run that could only be paralleled by Florida State and the ACC in the ’90s.But nothing gold can stay, and I think it’s time to call it quits.Everyone said this would be the year it would end between us. They said you were different this year and that someone would finally knock you off your pedestal. But all your buddies on campus faithfully said Pete Carroll would find a way to repeat yet again.But it’s become blatantly clear that you’ve changed this year. And Saturday proved that beyond a reasonable doubt.Look, I was willing to stand by you after the loss to Washington. It seemed just like any other year of our rocky relationship. Everyone said it was a disappointment, but it was nothing we hadn’t all seen before. It seemed like it would be just like last year when Oregon State caught you off guard, but you bounced back to finish the season in style.At worst, it appeared that we were destined for another memorable New Year’s Day date at the Rose Bowl. I know the students had grown tired of them, but I’m sure they all lust for those days now.However, these last few weeks showed us something was still wrong. And after what happened with Oregon, well, I just don’t know where we stand.What happened on Halloween in Eugene was surreal and still hard to compute. The 27-point margin of defeat from that loss was one point more than the combined margin of all of your losses since 2004. For all of your miscues, you could always say that you were never blown out and always had kept it close.Even more mystifying were the 391 yards rushing you gave up to the Ducks. That’s not a very USC-like performance, and there are few comparable efforts. The last time your defense looked like this was in 2005 when everyone clamored to call you the best team ever. But we learned that year that you can only go as far as your defense takes you, and that hasn’t been very far based on its performance the last three weeks.This doesn’t have to be all bad. Remember the good times?There was 2004, when you did the West Coast proud by running the table and winning a national championship. And who could forget all of those memorable non-conference matchups in which you more than lived up to your reputation? You helped raise my profile as a conference when I needed it most, and for that I am in your debt.When our run first started, I needed you. People said, “The Pac-10 is at its best when USC is strong,” and you helped give West Coast football some stability. Heck, when we first started our run, you shared the title with Washington State. Look at where the Cougars are now.We can still be friends, right? In fact, I’m still going to need you. Depending on what happens, I’ll still need you to stick up for me in the Holiday Bowl — or maybe even a BCS game, if you get your act together. Maybe a change of scenery would do you good after all those repetitive Rose Bowls.And there’s a possibility we could find our way back together at some point. People thought our run was over after your last loss in Eugene in 2007, but somehow we found a way back together.But for now, I hope you don’t mind if I see how things go with the Ducks. They’ve really impressed us and will probably be our representative for the Rose Bowl this year, so it’s for the best if I get to know them a little bit better. If you cross paths again, give Oregon my number and tell the Ducks we should talk.I know this is hard after seven years. But maybe we can just consider this a break and see what happens in 2010. Maybe you’ll come back rejuvenated and that old spark will be there again.But hey, we’ll always have Pasadena.“Tackling Dummy” runs Tuesdays.
