Justice Suresh Kait

  • Name of Judge: Justice Suresh Kait
  • Post Held at Relevant Time: Additional Judge in the Delhi High Court
  • Current Status:
  • Analysis/Comment/Critique:   The Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reforms filed a complaint to the Chief Justice of India against the gross abuse of powers by Justice Suresh Kait, a sitting Judge of the Hon’ble Delhi High Court appointed in September 2008.  The complaint urges inhouse proceedings against the Judge and that he may not be confirmed as a permanent Judge of the Delhi High Court. The complaint highlights the vindictive and malicious orders that were passed by Justice Kait that were calculated to intimidate a litigant. The orders were passed without jurisdiction or following due process,  and  confined the litigant to a mental health institute for 15 days with the following observation  – “it seems that he is suffering from some kind of mental disorder as he has been taking the Courts for granted and has been acting over-smart.” The order also abruptly  and unlawfully  denies him his inherent right to appear and argue in person.
