Hiremath said that Nayak was allotted a site (no 859/C) by the Karnataka Judicial Employees House Building Cooperative Society, when Nayak was the judge of the Andhra Pradesh High Court. While Nayak purchased the site measuring 6,175.5 sq ft for Rs 3.7 lakh, the  government value at the time of registration was Rs. 13.59 lakh.

It was  civic amenities (CA) site that cannot be allotted to an individual, he pointed adding that a case filed by the Judicial Layout Residents and Site Holders Association, the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) against the same is still pending in the High Court.
