The CJI said, “Justice Reddy was also born into an agricultural family like me and his journey as a legal professional is marked with many milestones.

I had also shared a bench with him and benefitted from his opinion and acumen,” he said.

He said, “I remember him as a young lawyer. He used to run from one court to another due to the volume of his work. He practiced for 22 years at tribunals, civil courts, AP High Court, before joining the Supreme Court.”

“Justice Reddy is known for his compassion and consciousness about social realities. The paramount standards of his ethical conduct and belief are reflected in his judgments.
