Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra today held a second meeting with four senior-most Supreme Court judges in three days and discussed issues like allocation of sensitive cases but no immediate solution to the unprecedented crisis seems to be in sight.

At the meeting between the CJI and four judges-- Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph -- which lasted for around 10-15 minutes, sources said the CJI was told that he was aware of the demands raised by them. The first meeting between the two sides after the virtual revolt by the four judges at a press conference last Friday was on Tuesday.

Sources said that some progress was made today amid indications that further talks are likely to take place on Monday as the CJI assured the four dissenting judges that he will consider the issues and suggestions raised by them on various matters. Justice Chelameswar has left for Chennai on a scheduled visit.

At today's meeting, a source close to one of the four judges said there were other judges who have been actively having parleys with the CJI and the four dissenting judges to resolve the crisis.

Justices A K Sikri, N V Ramana, U U Lalit and D Y Chandrachud were reported to be among those judges.

However, sources said that "crisis has not yet been resolved".

Sources said that Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao have also visited Justice Chelameswar's official residence here more than once since the January 12 news conference.

A source associated with the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) said that the four judges have been pressing for the roster system of assignment of court matters as has been suggested by the association to the CJI.

SCBA president Vikas Singh said he was hopeful that the issue will be resolved early next week as the CJI has been getting suggestions on allocation of work similar to what has been suggested by it.

While Chelameswar was on leave yesterday, Justice Gogoi had a meeting with him in the evening.

Yesterday, the meeting between the four judges and the CJI could not take place as Justice Chelameswar was indisposed.
