MANILA, Philippines – A newly appointed justice of the Court of Appeals CA defended his appointment by President Arroyo, saying there was nothing irregular in his designation, as well as those of other magistrates in the appellate court.

“It’s unfair insofar as our appointments to the CA is concerned,” said Hernando, who was named to the CA along with fellow magistrates Eduardo Peralta Jr. and Myra Fernandez.
