It is difficult for those who don’t have access to technology. I would like to draw the urgent attention of the Law Minister who is also the Minister of Electronics and IT to see if the situation can be remedied…of course, it would be at a great cost to the government”, said Chief Justice of India SA Bobde said today.He was speaking at the Constitution Day function organised virtually by the Supreme Court.”The Constitution gives identity to more than 1 billion people, protects their lives, rights and their destiny”.”When the pandemic struck, we were aware that the virus threatened the rule of law and threatened to completely block access to justice, and that there had to be an instant mutation. The choices that we had were either to do virtual hearings via videoconferencing or to shut down the courts completely”, he said.”Amidst the pandemic, the court dealt with different situations of migrant workers, of dead bodies not receiving burial on account of the fear of infection, inadequate hospital beds, cost of treatment etc. The court even looked into the spread of Covid in jails. We said ‘Release them’, including those facing incarceration in the detention centres in Assam”, elaborated the CJ.”I would also like to commend the lawyers, litigants, judges, court staff who have extended cooperation in making virtual courts possible. Of course, there are been instances of rage, depression of those staffing the system and the Supreme Court has set up a center for mental health. If the court had not been suspended, the virus would spread like wildfire among the lawyers, the litigants, the clerks and the court staff”, he explained.”It is not pleasant to announce that the Supreme Court is suffering the most. While the courts across the world are speaking of cases in single digit numbers, here, the cases have been in hundreds and thousands, of which many deal with Fundamental Rights. The courts of India have performed better than that of other countries. The Supreme Court has disposed off 14,859 cases since the lock down, all the High Courts together have disposed off 1.5 lakh cases, and the subordinate courts across the country, some 4.5 lakh. This has been possible through the cooperation and devotion to duty of the judiciary and the staff of the registry whose courage to come to the courts is exemplary. There has also been extraordinary cooperation by the Supreme Court Bar Association and the other bar associations”, he continued.Asserting that the Constitution is suprema lex, he pointed out that the rule of law, which originated much earlier, has been embodied in every aspect of the Constitution. He quoted the words of Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, in as much as the former President of India had said, ‘Dharma, righteousness, is the king of kings.It is the ruler of both the people and the rulers themselves. It is the sovereignty of the law which we have asserted.” “All the three organs of the State are important for securing the rule of law. The timeless principles of the Constitution, that is justice, liberty and equality, would not be possible to achieve without the rule of law”, stated the CJ.”The purpose of the Constitution is to limit the authority of the organs of the state, otherwise there will be utmost tyranny and oppression. If the legislature is free to make any law, if the executive is free to take any decision, and if the judiciary is free to give any interpretation, there will be utter chaos…The separation of powers does not contemplate any rivalry or antagonism between the three organs but only a separation of functions; there is unity of goals for all. The Supreme Court has held on several occasions, including in the landmark case of Kesavanada Bharati, that the three organs are to operate in harmony”, he continued.He expressed that over the past 70 years, the judiciary has discharged its duty as a “sentinel on qui vive”. “Courts have been called upon to determine questions of the freedom of speech, the right to life and liberty, right against exploitation, freedom of religion and cultural rights, privileges, limitation of power…Adjudication of rights includes an assertion of the correlate of duties”, he voiced.He quoted Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, in as much as the latter has articulated, “However good a constitution may be, if those who are implementing it are not good, it will prove to be bad. However bad a constitution may be, if those implementing it are good, it will prove to be good””So there is clear exhortation to us all in the Executive, the Judiciary, the Legislature to turn out a good lot”, remarked the CJ.He pointed out that in their preface to Durga Das Basu’s commentary on the Constitution, Justices Y.V. Chandrachud and S.S. Subbramani expressed that “When India’s neighbours were still wallowing under political oppression and economic underdevelopment, India itself had done very well through its Constitution”The CJ asserted that in view of the heterogeneity of personal laws, language, religion, caste, community, region, etc, the challenges to the Supreme Court of India have been unlike before any other. “However, I believe in the bright future”, he said.He concluded his speech, recounting Justice Hidayatullah’s warning, in his judgement, towards breaches of law – “He had stated that if we condone an evil as a necessary evil, it becomes more and more necessary and less and less evil. We must remind ourselves of this. But I must say that the courts have learnt quickly and well”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Rivers described an errant lob pass that Jordan grabbed from behind his shoulder before cocking it back and throwing it home. And, for good measure, he followed that by getting down the court to block a shot.Maybe the Clippers’ young guard is embellishing, but it’s the kind of sequence that helped Jordan earn a spot on the All-NBA First Team this past season and a place in Team USA’s rotation in Rio.Doc Rivers, the Clippers coach and one of the earliest people to declare Jordan a star, has seen more focus since the center returned from Rio. And, he said, the exposure to winning a championship, even as part of the most talented team on the planet, has incredible value.“I think you understand how when you’re around winning, no matter in what format it is, it’s important. And you realize how hard it is. I guarantee you each guy on the Olympic team thought, ‘We’re on the Olympic team. Look at all of us. We’re just going to go out and win,’” Doc Rivers said. “And they realized it didn’t matter. It’s hard. It’s hard to win, I don’t think people appreciate winning, I really don’t. I think in this day and time, people think you built your team, you should win. I don’t think people ever appreciate how hard it is to win, and I think that’s what DJ got out of that.”Jordan also got to pick up workout tricks from his teammates, putting in extra work with good friend Kevin Durant after practice and borrowing moves from DeMarcus Cousins during their on-court battles in practice.“USA Basketball was really great for me this summer, learning a lot of different things from great players and coaches,” Jordan said. “I’m just trying to expand my game as much as possible, and the leadership aspect of USA Basketball has really helped me a lot.”The gold medal, the All-NBA spot, the other individual recognition, it’s just a start, Jordan said.“I want to build on it,” he said. “Once you get a taste of something like that, you just want to get more of it.”Players enjoy Garnett’s intensityRivers wouldn’t open up about what exactly Kevin Garnett’s role with the Clippers is or will be, but the recently retired future Hall of Famer was working with the team’s big men for the second day in a row.“I don’t know. I’m going to … we’ll just figure it out,” Rivers said. “If it happens, it’ll be great. But, he’s going to be around enough where it’s official as far as I’m concerned.”Jordan raved about working with Garnett for the past two days.“It’s been amazing,” Jordan said. “I know a lot of guys idolized him, I know I still do and did as a young player coming up. Still to this day. He’s one of the best players this game’s seen. He’s so passionate and intense about the game, and that’s kind of how I am. His energy rubs off on a lot of people. We’re really fortunate to have him.”Jordan marveled that Garnett was in the gym working on footwork, lifting weights and shooting with Clippers players days after he retired.“A lot of guys would be hanging out and relaxing, but he’s in a full-blown sweat before practice, lifting with us, shooting after with us,” Jordan said. “You really have to take and bottle that up, and I’m going to do just that.“… I hope he’s here permanently. I want to do whatever I can do to make that happen.”Mo (getting) bucketsFree-agent addition Marreese Speights had a big day on Friday, drilling 3-point shot after 3-point shot during a scrimmage.“I knew Mo could shoot it, but man,” guard Austin Rivers said. “… He was shooting from deep. I didn’t know he had range like that.”Speights hit 38.7 percent on 3-point attempts last season for Golden State, and his range could be a significant factor in how successful the Clippers bench is this season. So far, his scoring mentality has fit in well with Rivers and reigning Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford.“He wants to score. Mo wants to score. It’s Mo Buckets,” Austin Rivers said. “… It’s not Mo Defense for sure. It’s Mo Buckets. He wants buckets.”Quick shotsVeteran Alan Anderson (ankle) returned to practice after sitting out Thursday for precautionary reasons. Anderson and Luc Mbah a Moute have been playing with the first unit during training camp, Doc Rivers said. … Rivers called this group the “best-conditioned team” he’s had early in training camp since taking over the Clippers three years ago. … The team will hold an open scrimmage from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. today at the Bren Center, though admittance requires a free ticket. The event is sold out. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error IRVINE >> Clippers center DeAndre Jordan could have answered the question with one word.“Did your experience in the Olympics give you more confidence?”At first, Jordan did his part to make for an easy transcription.“Yeah,” he said. But there was more.“Hell yeah. Hell yeah. Hell yeah,” Jordan repeated, each time getting a little louder and higher in pitch. “There have not been a lot of people to have done that.”Only one American, actually, got to start at center for the United States as they competed for a gold medal in men’s basketball in the 2016 Rio Olympics. And the spoils of Jordan’s summer job, that gold medal, are now sitting in his backpack, waiting for a custom case to be built (and hopefully paid for by Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, Jordan joked).But the medal wasn’t the only thing he brought back. That confidence – Austin Rivers described it as a different kind of swagger – has already been on display through four days of training camp at UC Irvine’s Bren Events Center.“He’s just a beast. He’s so big down there in the paint. He’s just a monster, man,” Rivers said. “He had a dunk today that probably one or two people could do it.”

Twitter/@CBSSportsCBB Little-used guard Anton Gill emerged during this year’s NCAA Tournament, helping Louisville top N.C. State with seven points on 3-of-3 shooting and two steals in just 11 minutes of play. That game ended up being the defining one of his brief Louisville career, as the former Top-50 recruit announced that he intended to transfer from the program, where he averaged just 9.4 minutes per game in 2014-15, after the season. While there were initially thoughts that Gill would transfer closer to a school in North Carolina to be closer to home, Gill is actually heading farther west, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.Louisville transfer Anton Gill told ESPN he has committed to Nebraska.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) May 5, 2015Nebraska had a disappointing 13-18 season in 2014-15, after a breakout 2013-14 in which Tim Miles’ team went 19-13 and made the NCAA Tournament. Perhaps a talent like Gill can help replace the void left by star Terran Petteway, who has declared for the NBA Draft.
