Lawyer Somasekhar Sundaresan Appointed as Judge of Bombay High Court

The well-known lawyer, Somasekhar Sundaresan, has been appointed as a judge of the Bombay High Court. Sundaresan, who was previously a member of the Supreme Court-appointed panel investigating the crash of Adani group stocks following the Hindenburg report, will now join the esteemed High Court.

Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal confirmed the news on X, formerly known as Twitter. However, due to existing protocols, it is anticipated that the Supreme Court will reconstitute the panel on the Adani-Hindenburg issue. This is because it is uncommon for a sitting judge of the High Court to be part of such investigation panels. The panel was initially appointed by a bench led by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud in March 2023, and Sundaresan’s appointment was suggested in November 2022.

The case is expected to be heard in the apex court on November 24. It is worth mentioning that in January 2023, the Supreme Court reiterated its recommendation to appoint Sundaresan as a judge of the Bombay High Court. The collegium of the Bombay HC had recommended his name for judgeship in 2021, and in February 2022, the SC Collegium also recommended his appointment.

However, in November 2022, the government requested reconsideration of the recommendation, citing Sundaresan’s expression of views on social media regarding pending court matters. The collegium responded by stating that these social media views do not imply any bias from Sundaresan. Additionally, the collegium recognized Sundaresan’s expertise in commercial law, which will prove invaluable to the Bombay High Court given the large number of commercial and securities law cases it handles, among other areas.
