Justice Gogoi likely to take oath as SC judge tomorrow


Chief justice with Punjab and Haryana high court Ranjan Gogoi is set to be sworn in as Supreme Court Judge on Friday.


The high court has already received warrants regarding elevation of justice Gogoi as the apex court judge. The decks were cleared after the Supreme Court collegiums approved Justice Gogoi's name last month. Hailing from Dibrugarh district, Gogoi, the son of former chief minister Keshab Gogoi, started legal practice in 1978 in Guwahati high court and was appointed as permanent judge of that court in February 2001.


He was transferred to Punjab and Haryana high court on September 9, 2010, and later elevated as chief justice on February 12 last year after the post fell vacant on the retirement of the then chief justice Mukul Mudgal.
