Disorder in the court

Have you been wondering what's going on with the Supreme Court of Pakistan, before which cases challenging the trial of civilians by courts-martial are pending? Dawn has this useful article: it turns out two justices think the court first needs to decide whether the Chief Justice of Pakistan has power to constitute benches to hear cases. A member of the bar has sought to have them held in contempt for refusing to sit on the court-martial case until the question of the Chief Justice's powers is resolved. 

Why does this all look like a slow-motion train wreck?
