Does Justice Reddy need a language policy?

Ram Mohan Reddy

Oral observations are in and written orders almost out. This unfortunately is not a trend that we could feel happy about. Sometimes a strong observation does the trick but on several occasions it only ends up ruining the case in toto.

Mandamus226 had recently posted an article discussing the manner in which some of the judges spoke in open court. However let us be specific and talk about Justice Ram Mohan Reddy who has this habit of shooting his hat every time he hears a case.

Here are some observations. You decide for yourself whether such comments are necessary or not. Let me tell you something. The best judges are the one’s who spoke less and wrote more. For example Mr. Justice M N Venkatachalaiah.

NGEF liquidation proceedings before Justice Ram Mohan Reddy: The site on which NGEF is situated was put on auction. Counsel for the highest bidder stood up to argue his case. Justice Reddy remarked- “you are nothing but a land shark. Sit down.”

NGEF liquidation proceedings before Justice Ram Mohan Reddy: State Bank of Mysore which is due close to Rs 80 crore from the government is also a party in this litigation. The argument by SBM is that if the land is auctioned, then Rs 80 crore should be returned by the government from the money it gets from the auction. When the counsel for SMB stood up to make his submission, Justice Reddy shot back, “you are an ordinary money lender. Sit down.”

 Matter relating to election to local bodies: Justice Reddy sought to know why the reservation list was not drawn out. The government advocate tried justifying the delay. Justice Reddy then shouted back, “it is a Tughlak durbar over there in your government.”

Diamond district matter: Justice Reddy sought to know why some of the officials had not been punished. As usual the government advocate tried explaining. To this Justice Reddy remarked, “ the officers are bandicoots.”

Think about it.

    SBM a money lender. Either the judge does not know what SBM is or does not know what a money lender is. Either ways he does not know

  18. yatish says:

  19. manya says:

    Yes the lawyers should be tough

  20. sal says:

    well, its time to install CCTVs in court halls too…but, problem is..who will bell the cat.

  36. Sunil says:

    Oversmart judge

  37. Ramani says:

    The Judge knows best.
    An approach has to be tailored to the occasion.
    No pain no gain.
    If this is what it takes to get the best outcome then, we have to work with our Judges.

  38. Goldbuddings says:

    Ram Mohan Rddy is young and inexperienced. Forgive him his ego and know all attitude. He will improve. But why is he fingering small people like the workmen who are starving for 10 years? Why should the banks suffer? Dont they have any rights? Will someone advise him quickly? someone should. And why a special affection for Uday and his Hollagiri? Uday only wants to swallow the land and give it to his political masters. that is obvious. Jai Karnataka!
