The appeals were filed by the PCO judges against the contempt of court notices filed against them.
Majority of the PCO judges had already tendered apologies before the SC. However, some judges including Justice Hasnat Ahmed Khan and Justice Syed Shabbar Raza Rizvi of the Lahore High Court had decided to contest their cases against the contempt notices.
