This article focuses, in the first instance, on the writing of Harry T. Edwards7, Emeritus Circuit Judge, United States Court of Appeal for the District of Columbia, Washington Circuit, by specifically addressing his paper entitled, ‘’The Effects of Collegiality on Judicial Decision Making’’ (2003)151 Pennsylvania Law Review 1639.Thereafter the article proceeds to apply to his theory the empirical data recorded in the interviews conducted with bench members in Delhi, Pune, Bhopal, Chennai and Kolkata.
