Justice Gita Gopi recused herself from the Rahul Gandhi’s Plea

On Wednesday, Judge Gita Gopi of the Gujarat High Court recused herself from hearing Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s urgent plea challenging the Surat Sessions Court’s order declining to stay his conviction in the ‘Modi surname’ defamation case.

After getting no relief from the Surat Sessions Court, Gandhi approached the high court, where his lawyer Pankaj Champaneri requested that the criminal revision application be heard on an urgent basis. However, Justice Gopi, while allowing the application, recused herself, saying ‘not before me’. Justice Gopi did not give any reason for the recusal.
