Delhi HC dismisses PIL on appointment procedure of Information Commissioners

A quick (and delayed) update. As mentioned before in this blog before, some of us has filed a PIL in the Delhi High Court seeking transparent appointment of Chief Central Information Commissioner. The Delhi HC dismissed this case saying that though the cause was good, the HC does not have the powers.
