Supreme Court Judges Act 1858

The Supreme Court Judges Act 1858 guaranteed the tenure of judges 'during good behaviour'. Freedom from unreasonable dismissal was an important element of judicial independence, and had been introduced in Britain in 1701 to prevent the monarch from dismissing judges on a whim.
