Justice Rakesh Kumar of India; ethical goblin


The state of Virginia provided Rakesh Kumar with a law license in 1986 after he graduated from the Patna University School of Law.


The High Court found Rakesh guilty of engaging in the following misconduct.


In one matter, Justice Kumar had taken suo motu (action on his own accord) cognizance of bail granted by a vigilance court to a retired IAS officer involved in a corruption case, a year after an anticipatory bail plea of the former bureaucrat had been dismissed by another court.


In his 20-page-order, Justice Kumar directed the District Judge, Patna, to conduct an inquiry into the bail granted to former bureaucrat K P Ramaiah, and directed the CBI to investigate alleged corruption in the civil court here, as claimed in a two-year-old sting operation by a private news channel.


In addition, Justice Kumar had recounted a number of anecdotes to suggest that the higher judiciary in the state had been found wanting in the clampdown on corruption and favoritism.


As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Disciplinary Board punished Rakesh by gifting him with a complimentary censure.


As we speak (ca. November 2019), Rakesh continues to sit as a Patna High Court Judge in Patna, Bihar, India.
