So far, 20 of the Magistrate and Circuit Court judges implicated in the scandal have been sacked from office.

But in a writ filed at the Supreme Court Thursday, the three are seeking “A Declaration that the Petitions that the 1st Defendant (Tiger Eye PI) filed with the President of Ghana for the removal of the Plaintiffs as Justices of the Superior Court are inconsistent with and in contravention of Article 146(3) of the 1992 Constitution as the 1st Defendant lacked legal capacity to file the said petitions. “
