The four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court held a meeting with CJI Dipak Misra on Thursday to put a rest to issues raised by them during a press conference on January 12.

The meeting between the CJI and four judges-- Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph lasted for around 10-15 minutes before the resumption of court proceedings at 10:30 am, court sources said.

Among the key points discussed at the meeting was the possibility of a specialized bench for allocation of particular cases, a system which is already in place at high courts.

The four dissenting judges also submitted a draft memorandum to Chief Justice Misra, and demanded transparency in allocation of cases. Also on the agenda was adopting a procedure if there are allegations of corruption on a judge.

In an unprecedented presser on January 12, the four senior-most judges of the apex court had raised a litany of problems, including assigning of cases in the top court, and said there were certain issues afflicting the country's highest court.
