Since the resumption of the Verdictum series, we have analysed the profiles of seven former judges of the Supreme Court, specifically the number of judgments delivered by each judge through his term. Two weeks ago, we published a “Verdictum Comparision”, highlighting the number of judgments delivered by Justices AK Ganguly, Dalveer Bhandari, and Deepak Verma. In this column, we compare the number of judgments delivered by Justices Swatanter Kumar, DK Jain and Aftab Alam..When it comes to their judicial careers, all three judges were elevated from the Bar; Justice Kumar did serve as an additional district judge for roughly nine months. While Justice Alam was made the Acting Chief Justice of a High Court (J&K), both Kumar (Bombay) and Jain (P&H) were Chief Justices of a High Court before elevated to the Supreme Court. As for their age, Kumar was the oldest of the three (61 years 11 months) while the youngest of the three was Justice DK Jain (58 years 2 months). All three are currently holding positions in different appellate authorities..More details can be found in the table below:.Productivity Analysis.Although it is not the most accurate method of evaluating a judge, an analysis of the disposal rates of these three judges throw up some interesting bits of data. For instance, despite having a shorter tenure than DK Jain, Justice Alam has been involved in a far higher number of judgments. Justice Jain also managed to be in only 67 Constitutional Benches, compared to Alam’s 86 and Kumar’s 58..More details can be found in the tables below..When it comes to per-day productivity, once again again it is Justice Alam who leads the trio with 0.32 judgments per day, followed by Justice Kumar’s 0.24 judgments per day.
