A single bench of Justice M Nagaprasanna said “Sections 8 and 10 of the Karnataka State Commission for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Act, 2002, makes it abundantly clear that the Commission is not empowered to adjudicate upon the rights of parties.” It added “The power vested with the Commission of Inquiry and submission of a report cannot be extended to adjudicate all disputes between individuals and a State or a statutory authority. The powers conferred do not contemplate that the Commission can examine matters like a civil Court and adjudicate disputes and pronounce its decision either interim or final or issue a direction of the kind that is issued in the case on hand.” By order dated November 11, 2016 the commission directed the State Government to accord retrospective seniority to the fifth respondent K.R.MURALIDHAR, working as Superintendent in the office of director Department of Pre University Education and also grant him all consequential monetary benefits and also effect correction of date of entry into service of Superintendent in the seniority list inter se between the petitioner M.B.SIDDALINGASWAMY. Advocate M.S. Bhagwat, appearing for the petitioner would submit that the very petition before the Commission was not maintainable as the fifth respondent being a Government servant had to approach the Karnataka State Administrative Tribunal for redressal of his grievance and the Commission had no jurisdiction to issue directions. While the counsel for the Commission and the State government contended that redressal of grievance of a citizen belonging to Scheduled Caste or Scheduled Tribe is the duty of the Commission when discrimination against such candidate is evident on the face of it. The bench referred to Article 338 of the Constitution of India and the 65thendment to Article 338 by which it vested the Commission with all the powers of a civil Court trying a suit while investigating any matter referred to it under sub-clause (a) or enquiring into any complaint referred it under sub-clause (b) of Clause (5) of Article 338. Sub-clause (a) reads thus: To investigate and monitor all matters relating to the safeguards provided for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes under this Constitution or under any other law for the time being in force or under any order of the Government and to evaluate the working of such safeguards. Sub clause (b) read thus: to inquire into specific complaints with respect to the deprivation of rights and safeguards of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes; Accordingly, it said “The Commission cannot be construed to be a Tribunal or a forum discharging the functions of a judicial character or Court. Article 338 of the Constitution itself does not entrust the Commission with the power to take up the role of a Court or an adjudicatory Tribunal and determine the rights of parties inter se.” Justice Nagaprasanna said “Clause (8) of Article 338 gives all the powers of a civil Court trying a suit but the said powers are to be exercised while investigating any matter referred to it in the clauses aforementioned which would make it clear that the powers bestowed upon the Commission by the Constitution are procedural powers of the civil Court for the purpose of investigating and enquiring into matters and are limited only for that purpose. The procedure that is conferred under Article 338 cannot be confused to be conferring a substantive power akin to that of a civil Court or a Tribunal which are adjudicating bodies of disputes of citizens.” The court while quashing the impugned order of the Commission noted that “The impugned order which decides the dispute between the petitioner and the fifth respondent and gives a direction to the State Government to promote the fifth respondent with retrospective effect, correct the seniority, extend all consequential benefits and report the action taken back to the Commission, are all powers which are ostensibly adjudicatory in nature, which power the Commission, in terms of the law laid down by the Apex Court in the cases of ALL INDIA INDIAN OVERSEAS BANK SC AND ST EMPLOYEES’ WELFARE ASSOCIATION & OTHERS v. UNION OF INDIA AND OTHERS reported in (1996) 6 SCC 606 and COLLECTOR v. AJIT JOGI reported in (2011) 10 SCC 357 (supra) interpreting Article 338 of the Constitution of India, does not have.” Case Details: M.B.SIDDALINGASWAMY And THE STATE OF KARNATAKA Case No: WRIT PETITION No.63405/2016 Date of Order: 23RD DAY OF NOVEMBER, 2020 Coram: JUSTICE M.

Courtesy Ben Crump LawBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(HOUSTON) — A three-state, five-day final journey for George Floyd will end Tuesday morning in Houston, the city he called home for most of his life.Thousands of mourners, including longtime friends and family members, are expected to attend the final funeral services at The Fountain of Praise on Hillcroft Avenue at 11 a.m. local time.Floyd, 46, grew up in the city’s Third Ward, where those that knew him say he was loved by friends and family alike, who often referred to the 6-foot 6-inch man as a “gentle giant.”The service comes a day after the church held a six-hour public viewing of his body that was attended by thousands of mourners including former Vice President Joe Biden and Gov. Greg Abbott. Biden is slated give a video message during Tuesday’s private service.Following the funeral, Floyd will be buried in Houston Memorial Gardens in Pearland, next to his mother, according to the family’s representatives.Earlier, Floyd had memorial and viewing services in Minneapolis and in North Carolina, where he was born, with thousands of people and dignitaries including the Rev. Al Sharpton in attendance.Floyd played football for Houston’s Yates High School as a tight end and was part of the team that went to the state championship in 1992. He remained active in the community, particularly in his church, and helped organize events including bible studies and basketball tournaments.In 2007, Floyd was charged with armed robbery and sentenced to five years in prison as part of a plea deal in 2009. After he was released from prison, Floyd moved to Minneapolis for better job opportunities and held several jobs including working as a bouncer at a restaurant.Floyd stayed close with his Houston family and friends, and kept in close contact with his daughter Gianna, 6, and her mother Roxie Washington. He was planning on bringing them to Minneapolis full-time, according to friends and family.On May 25, a convenience store clerk called 911 and reported that Floyd had used a phony $20 bill to pay for cigarettes. Four police officers, Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao, answered the call and arrested Floyd outside of his car.The arrest was captured on several cameras as Chauvin placed Floyd on the ground and put his knee on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes while Floyd said “I can’t breathe” before going lifeless. The officers were fired from the force, and all were subsequently arrested.Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, while the other three were charged with second-degree aiding and abetting felony murder and second-degree aiding and abetting manslaughter.Floyd’s death sparked protests around the world calling for equal justice and police reform.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
