SolGen dared: Question De Castro over SALNs, too

Was this a case of giving a Supreme Court associate justice a dose of her own medicine?   A private citizen on Friday urged Solicitor General Jose Calida to apply the same legal principle he had cited in moving for Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno's ouster against her primary nemesis---Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro.   In a four-page letter, Jocelyn Marie Acosta said Calida should also file a quo warranto petition against De Castro for her supposed failure to submit all her statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALNs) to the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) when she was appointed to the 15-member Supreme Court in December 2007, by then ...Keep on reading: SolGen dared: Question De Castro over SALNs, too.....»»

Descent into lawlessness gets pushback

It does look like the Duterte administration has crossed one red line too many. Solgen Jose Calida’s bag of legalistic tricks has been shot full of holes. Even the usually compliant Supreme Court managed to skirt huge public outcries by astutely finding a way to look like they are adhering to a rule of law. Yes, of course, they are not a trier of facts; and yes, indeed, it is the lower courts that can issue an arrest warrant. Even the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, the national lawyers’ league, has awakened to its conscience and reminded all that there is a Constitution and that it must not be violated. They had been too quiet during the quo warranto dismissal of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, against the constitutional provision that a Supreme Court justice can only be dismissed through impeachment. Even the Senate has rediscovered its backbone. It has dropped partisanship and united to protect Senate colleague Antonio Trillanes IV against arrest within its premises. Suddenly, we are reminded that, yes, indeed, the Senate is an independent and separate branch of government from the Executive and Judiciary.

Carpio won’t succeed De Castro–Duterte

President Duterte has discounted the possibility that Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, the most senior magistrate in the Supreme Court, may succeed incoming Chief Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro after she reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70 on Oct. 8. Mr. Duterte said Carpio himself had declared that he was not interested in the chief magistrate's post. "He stated publicly that he is not going to accept. So why force a person to accept a task that he does not want. This is a free country," the President said. Carpio did not apply for the vacancy at the top post of the judiciary left by the ouster of former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno because he did not want to...Keep on reading: Carpio won’t succeed De Castro–Duterte.....»»
