The Court of Appeals Controversy Part 5: CA says respect our silence

The Inquirer reports that the Court of Appeals has issued a statement that it has referred the controversy to the Supreme Court Office of the Court Administrator. The justices also agreed to leave the ruling on the dispute between the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) and the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) to the “parties concerned for appropriate action;” and refer the conflict to its standing committee on the internal rules of court.

The Inquirer further reports that the justices also appealed to everyone to respect their silence on the issue and refrain from public discussion of the case.


With the appeal of the Court of Appeals to refrain from public discussion of the case, I don't know where that leaves this blog. I will check the rules on "sub judice" and post about it later.
