The newly-appointed Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi on Wednesday said that "parameters" will be worked out for urgent mentioning and hearing of cases and that "no urgent mentioning of cases will be allowed" till the parameters are fixed. "We will work out the parameters then we will see as to how mentioning will be done," he said. "If somebody is going to be hanged tomorrow, then we can understand (urgency)", the CJI said.

In Supreme Court, Gogoi said: "No mentioning! We are working out the parameters….if someone is being released today, then yes….if someone is being hanged today, then yes….if somebody is being evicted today, then yes….if there is a risk of demolition, yes….beyond that, No!"
In fact, when advocate Mathews J Nedumpara, while trying to mention a matter in the apex court, welcomed the newly-appointed CJI, Gogoi cut him short. Nedumpara reportedly said, "All the best as the captain of the ship," Gogoi said, "Mr Nedumpara, we don’t need this. You are here to mention? No mentioning till parameters are worked out." The new CJI also refused to pass over a case. “No pass over, argue your case," Gogoi remarked
