NEW DELHI: SC on Wednesday indefinitely deferred in-chamber adjudication of petitions, seeking review of its Oct 17, 2023 judgment rejecting pleas for legalisation of same-sex marriages, as one of the judges on the bench recused from the proceedings.
Justice Sanjiv Khanna, who will succeed CJI D Y Chandrachud on Nov 3 this year, recused from the case as he became aware that an advocate who had represented a party in the original case was a relative.Though the review petitions were filed last year, the bench had to be reconstituted as two judges have since retired.
