Go CJ De Lima!
Supalpal na naman ang mga alagad ni pandak!!!
ayun lumalabas na.. all along ambisyon pala talaga niya maging chief justice. kaya pala sinuway niya ang utos dati ng korte suprema para magkapangalan o sumikat.. siguro at that point, mukhang okay pa.
kaso tumestigo laban sa napatalsik na CJ eh. kaunting delicadeza naman sana.
De Lima: Iím strong bet for Chief Justice
Front page news, good one, Inquirer
Anung pinagkaiba nito sa pagappoint ni Glue kay Corona noon?
Dahil Aquino ang surname ni Noynoy?
What made her a strong bet for CJ Post? She's starting to sound like a Politician in a campaign trail. Not cool.
Corona was a midnight appointee, he was the Chief Legal Adviser to GMA. That spells out the huge difference.
I personally don't want De Lima to be the next CJ.
I prefer Tito Tony Carpio. All hell breaks loose.
Judicial reform too important to fail
by Acting Chief Justice Antonio T Carpio
The leaders of the judiciary must lead by example. The successful organizations are those whose leaders lead by example.
The judiciary needs to learn, and implement, the lessons from the recent impeachment of the former Chief Justice. These lessons pertain to integrity, transparency and accountability in the Judiciary. Of course, the judiciary is only one of the pillars of the broader justice system that includes the community as well as agencies of the executive branch.
The number one problem of the judiciary is clogged dockets, arising from delays in trial, and delays in deciding cases. Clogged dockets impair social justice, hinder economic development, and erode public confidence in the justice system and ultimately in the entire government.
At present, 21% of trials take 2 to 5 years to finish, and 13% take more than 5 years to finish. On the other hand, cases should ideally be decided as prescribed by the Constitution: not more than 24 months for the Supreme Court, not more than 12 months for all other appellate courts, and not more than 3 months for all other lower courts, all counted from the date of submission for resolution of the case.
Online, real-time monitoring. The template for this CMS is the two-year old case management system of the Court of Appeals (CA), which is widely acknowledged worldwide as a success. Presiding Justice Andres Reyes of the CA estimates that by the end of this year 2012, the CA will comply with the constitutional directive that CA cases should be decided within 12 months from date of submission for resolution.
The CMS will allow the CJ, PJ, the Court Administrator and the Deputy Court Administrators, to monitor online, and in real time, the caseload, aging, and the rate of disposition of cases of any judge or justice. The public can also find out the status of their cases by simply going to the website of the court.
The gatekeeper of integrity and independence is the JBC, which must insure that no one who does not possess integrity and independence gets into the list of nominees submitted to the President.
Decisions of a judge or justice are the best evidence of the competence, integrity and independence of the judge or justice. A decision can reveal whether the judge or justice knows his law, whether a judge or justice has favored a litigant, and whether a judge or justice has a steely or wimpy decisional independence.
The leaders of the judiciary, and I refer to the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, must be the embodiment of integrity and independence for the rest of the judiciary to follow. Thus, the Supreme Court Justices should lead in complying with the law by disclosing their SALNs as mandated by the Constitution and the law. The Supreme Court has done this as part of the lessons learned from the recent impeachment of the former Chief justice.
I share these thoughts with you because judicial reform is too big to be undertaken by the judiciary alone. Judicial reform can happen only with the cooperation of all stakeholders in the justice system Ė the judiciary, the executive and legislative Branches, the Bar and the public.
All the stakeholders must work earnestly together because a well-functioning judiciary is essential for good governance and for the economic development of our country. Judicial reform is simply too important to fail.

halus ipagdildilan na niya sarili niya sa pagka CJ.. 'yan ba ang character ng isang magiging punong mahistrado? parang hyena na naglalaway sa puwesto?
kaunting finesse naman po 'dyan.
I oppose any attempt to give the appointing power for the SC CJ to the Senate. We can argue with the JBC's composition.
De Lima is qualified for the nomination but not for the actual CJ post.
De Lima is dilemma.
Gusto ko si Dean Pangalagan.
Sana si Tony Carpio manalo... tapos sa mga natalo na lang kunin yung 15th Justice. Para tipid.
MANILA, Philippines - Justice Secretary Leila de Lima will stay as a contender for the post of chief even as she faces two disbarment complaints filed against her in 2011.
"The rule is to wait for voting day because the cases might be dismissed by then," Jose Mejia, one of the members of the JBC, said.
If the cases are still not dismissed by July 30, then the JBC will have to disqualify the candidate facing disbarment, he added.
De Lima has a curious case.
In 2011, lawyers Ricardo Rivera and Augusto Sundiam went to the Supreme Court to file two disbarment complaints against her.
Under the rules, the SC refers such complaints to the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), which is tasked to establish basis for the complaints.
Rappler learned that neither of the two disbarment complaints filed against De Lima exist in the records of the IBP.
"We checked our records, there's none," IBP president Roan Libarios told Rappler when asked if there are pending disbarment cases against De Lima."IBP has not received any formal complaint or any formal referral [from the SC]."
Naging ganid narin tong si Delima.. akala mo malinis ang intention yun pala me mga hidden agenda.
well guys being CJ is a chance of a lifetime, anyone would grab it if given the chance.....thats what we call human nature.... just saying...
Si de lima ay dating alagad ng sinasabi mong pandak
de Lima would make a way better Chief Justice than Carpio and the others.
the lady has balls. i'm rooting for her.
Ang taong hindi sumusunod sa rule of law, constitution at batas siya pa ang magiging CJ?
Lokohan ba eto? Only in the Philippines.
Baka pag nasa SC na yan kahit anong maisipan niya at interpretation niya masunod kahit baluktot.
Yan ang gusto ninyong mag-interpret ng laws, sarap murahin
