უზენაესი სასამართლოს მოსამართლეების შერჩევისა და ლევან მურუსიძის მოსამართლის თანამდებობაზე უვადოდ დანიშვნის პროცესმა სრული სიცხადით დაადასტურა სასამართლო სისტემის ნაწილში და მის მმართველ რგოლში - იუსტიციის უმაღლეს საბჭოში - არსებული კრიზისული მდგომარეობა და ე.წ. კლანის ზღვარგადასული ძალაუფლება. საბჭო, ბოლო წლებია, აშკარად ბოროტად იყენებს მისთვის კონსტიტუციით მინიჭებულ უფლებამოსილებებს და პრაქტიკულად არც ერთ გადაწყვეტილებას არ იღებს მართლმსაჯულების ინტერესებიდან გამომდინარე.
