The Judiciary has been put on the spot after a disgruntled ex-employee contested her sack.

Judicial Service Commission and Chief Registrar of Judiciary have been sued by a former employee alleging unlawful termination of her 18 years of service.

Ms Lucy Muthoni content that she was unlawfully removed from the judiciary through a directive by the former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga.

In the petition Muthoni says that she has never been furnished with documents and proceedings that led to her removal and or dismissal from the judiciary.

The firm of Okemwa and Company advocates representing Ms Muthoni has applied for the production of the proceedings from the disciplinary committee leading to her dismissal.

Justice Onemsus Makau certified the matter urgent and directed the same be served upon JSC and the Registrar of the Judiciary and the matter be heard on 4 June 2108.

The petitioner was interdicted on June 15 2016 and thereafter disciplinary proceedings commenced and a decision communicated to her on May 2018.
